Gender Pay Gap Regulations

| Published on October 23, 2018

Private and voluntary sector employers with 250 or more employees must now publish gender pay gap data.

By making this information readily available, companies will be able to show the average earnings of all their male and female staff.

The following must be published on their own websites and uploaded to the government website:

  • Overall gender pay gap figures for relevant employees
  • Proportion of men and women in each of four pay bands
  • Information regarding the employer’s gender bonus gap
  • A written statement, signed by an appropriate senior individual, confirming the accuracy of the information published


Consequences of non-compliance

There is no civil enforcement system, however the government has indicated it will:

  1. Run periodic checks to assess non-compliance
  2. Produce sector tables of reported pay gaps
  3. Highlight and identify employers publishing full and explanatory information


If your business has any queries regarding salary reporting or what you must do to disclose gender pay gap details then please contact Audrey Spencer, head of Employment Law, on or 01202 725400.
