UK Companies must Declare Gender Pay Gap

New Regulations under the UK Equality Act make it compulsory for any organisation that has 250 or more employees to publish and report specific figures about their gender pay gap from 2017. Companies have been asked to submit their reports by 2018 and if they fail to do so they will be contacted by the Equalities and Human Rights Commission. Companies that discover they do have a gender pay gap will be encouraged to publish an action plan alongside the figures detailing the steps they plan to take to address the problem.
