Gender Pay Gap

Gender Pay Gap report – 2019

Gender Pay Gap

Equal pay continues to be an ongoing issue despite the Equal Pay Act being introduced 45 years ago.

In April 2017, the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2016 (“the Regulations”) was introduced to deal with the increasing pay gap.

These regulations compelled all employers within the private and voluntary sectors with 250 or more employees to declare their gender pay gap.

Businesses affected are now in their second year of reporting and progress is judged not simply by comparing numbers but by genuine signs of action.
