Affecting all employers with more than 250 employees, the new rules will require website publication of various statistics showing the difference in mean and median pay between male and female employees. This session will take you through the detail of the draft proposals and the practical implications.

We finally have details of the Government’s proposals to introduce gender pay gap reporting – and there are a few surprises in the draft regulations.

Affecting all employers with more than 250 employees, the new rules will require website publication of various statistics showing the difference in mean and median pay between male and female employees. This must include separate information about bonuses as well as basic pay. There is an additional obligation to show the numbers of men and women within each quartile pay band.

Although the first reporting will not be required until April 2018, employers need to start preparing now to minimise the risk of future problems. Our seminar on 4th March will take you through the detail of the draft proposals and the practical implications, including:

How to assess whether you are affected by the regulations

  • What counts as “pay”
  • What steps you can be taking now to get ready for the first reporting date
  • What additional information you can give to correct misleading statistics
  • What happens if you don’t comply

The draft regulations are currently under consultation, so please come along ready to give your views and we can input them into the consultation response on your behalf.
