This report investigates suspected past pay discrimination against women at the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).
It looks at a sample of formal and informal pay complaints raised with the BBC by staff from 1 January 2016. It also looks at the systems and processes that the BBC used for setting pay and assessing complaints.
Research did not find any unlawful pay discrimination in the cases analysed during the investigation. But research did identify some areas where the BBC can make improvements to rebuild trust with women at the organisation and increase transparency around decision-making and communications.
This report sets out our findings and recommendations for change.
