Gender pay gap

Draft rules on gender pay reporting have been published.

Draft rules on gender pay reporting have been published.

Under The Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2016, employers with more than 250 employees will have to publish information about the payments they make to their male and female employees. There could be a naming and shaming process, and even civil and criminal sanctions, for those that don’t comply.

It’s expected that the new rules will come into force in October this year. Although the first reporting deadline isn’t until April 2018, larger employers will need to gear up for this, which will include taking a snapshot of pay as at April 2017.

If you’re interested in offering your views, consultation on the draft regulations is open until 11 March.
