Gender pay reporting legislation requires employers with 250 or more employees to publish statutory calculations every year showing how large the pay gap is between their male and female employees.
These results must be published on the employers own website and a government site. This means that the gender pay gap will be publicly available, including to customers, employees and potential future recruits.
As a result, employers should consider taking new or faster actions to reduce or eliminate their gender pay gaps.
There are two sets of regulations:
the first is mainly for the private and voluntary sectors who have to publish their report by 4 April each year
the second is mainly for the public sector who must publish by 30 March each year
