Mind the Gap: New Gender Pay Gap Reporting Regulations are published

7 December 2016

Finally, the revised draft legislation that will implement the Gender Pay Gap (GPG) Reporting regime applicable to private sector employers in Great Britain with 250 or more employees has been published.  The Government has taken on board concerns raised during the consultation process including in relation to the meaning of 'employee' and 'pay' and the nature of the pay data to be published.

As anticipated in scope employers will have until 4 April 2018 to produce their first GPG Report. Even if preparatory work has already been undertaken, this will have to be revisited in light of the changes to the legislation to ensure that relevant pay and bonus data is taken into account.
