Gender Pay Gap Consultation this Summer


<1 min

Posted on 01 Jul 2015

The Government intends to introduce legislation that will require employers with 250 or more employee to publish information about the gender pay gap in their organisation. The legislation is expected to come into force in March 2016. 

In preparation, the Government has announced that it will launch a consultation this summer, with a view to legislating in early 2016.

The consultation is likely to consider matters such as the type of information employers will have to publish, where and when the information will have to be published and in what format. It may also consider whether certain employers/ employees should not be covered by the legislation.

The legislation will not apply to Government departments, the armed force and certain public authorities.
