The Government has launched a consultation into the proposed gender pay gap regulations. This is a follow up to the earlier consultation on how to increase pay transparency, and focuses specifically on draft regulations which will apply to private and voluntary sector employers with at least 250 employees.
When do employers need to act?
It is proposed that the regulations will come into force on 1 October 2016, although the draft regulations specify that the information must be published within a year from 30 April 2017 i.e. as late as 29 April 2018.
