Asos discloses ethnicity pay gap in fashion retail first


Online fashion giant Asos has published ethnicity pay gap data for the first time, and is thought also to be the first big apparel retailer to do so. 

The figures, which are not a legal requirement, were published alongside Asos’ gender pay data as the etailer seeks to enhance transparency and diversity.

The data showed median pay for ethnic minority employees at Asos is 5.9% higher compared to their white counterparts, which is up 21.2% since 2020.
