The Government has published its consultation on how best to implement mandatory gender pay reporting. It asks extensive questions about how the new regime should work and about wider issues on the gender pay gap. Key questions include:

  • What level of detailed information should be required, for example whether it should have a breakdown by full and part-time employees or by grade/job, rather than just one overall figure for the workforce as a whole.
  • Should employers be required or entitled to provide contextual information to explain their pay gap figures?
  • Whether, and if so where, employers should be required to publish their gender pay information.
