As part of its Pacific Pay Gap Inquiry, the Human Rights Commission instigated a ground-breaking piece of work, surveying employers about the monitoring of ethnic pay gaps, good workplace diversity and inclusion practices and any ideas they may have about how to close the gap.
Earlier this month, the Human Rights Commission handed to Government its findings and recommendations.
