gender pay gap reporting – are you ready?

14 March 2017

Over the past 18 months we have seen an increase in the reporting requirements for large corporates. For example, the requirement for in scope organisations to annually publish a slavery and human trafficking statement and the new payment practices regulations coming into force in April this year.

It is now also clear that the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 will come into force on 6 April 2017. If you employ 250 or more employees what does this mean for you? For 2017, and each subsequent year, you will need to:

  • publish your gender pay gap information as required by the Regulations on your own website and on a designated government website (details yet to be confirmed)
  • include with this published information a written statement confirming that this information is correct – and the statement must be signed by a director (or a designated member if you are an LLP).

Need more detail about the information that needs to be reported?
