Equality legislation... Gender pay gap reporting
At the time of publication the government are implementing gender pay gap reporting, compulsory for organisations with more than 250 employees.
This is because... “Overall, women can expect to earn significantly less than men over their entire careers as a result of differences in caring responsibilities; clustering in low skilled and low paid work, the qualifications and skills women acquire; and outright discrimination. The current overall gap for full time workers is 13.9%” (The Fawcett Society).
