Government sets out support measures for gender pay gap reporting

Makbool Javaid

The Government has published its response to the consultation on gender pay gap reporting which includes the support measures which will be provided for employers. The response sets out a three-part package of support to help employers calculate and address their gender pay gap, including:

  • A campaign of myth-busting UK-wide events and multimedia guidance to help employers calculate their gender pay gap, gender bonus gap and the numbers of men and women at different pay quartiles.
  • Targeted support for smaller employers, and those in sectors that are least advanced on gender equality.
  • Share best practice of examples through Think, Act, Report, and a report on the ‘trailblazing action’ many businesses are taking to tackle the pay gap.

The aim of this update is to provide summary information and comment on the subject areas covered. In particular, where employment tribunal and appellate court cases are reported, the information does not set out all of the facts, the legal arguments presented by the parties and the judgments made in every aspect of the case.
