Gender pay gap reporting
Regulations requiring employers with 250 or more employees to publish information on their gender pay gap are expected to come into force on 6 April 2017.
The draft Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017, published in December 2016, apply only to private- and voluntary-sector employers. In January 2017, the Government published draft Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017 that extend the duty to public-sector employers with 250 or more employees.
Our practical guidance on how to measure and report a gender pay gap sets out the key steps that employers should take to comply with the gender pay gap Regulations.
