Gender Pay Gap Reporting

Friday 2nd February 2018

With only 2 months to go until organisations with 250 or more employees are required to publish their gender pay gap data, employers should now be taking steps to compile relevant data and carry out the necessary calculations if they have not already done so.

As we have previously reported, private businesses and public bodies are required to publish their data both on their own website and the government’s gender pay gap website (here) by 4 April 2018 and 30 March 2018 respectively.  At the time of writing only 761 (out of an estimated 9,000) organisations have published their data.

With organisations that do not comply with their duty to publish their gender pay gap data potentially facing unlimited fines and convictions (according to the enforcement plan published by the Equality and Human Rights Commission), it is imperative that organisations take the appropriate steps now to ensure compliance.
