GENDER PAY GAP REPORTING: A new dawn for equal value claims?

01 April 2016  

Annabel Gillham, Andrew Taggart and Hannah Lau consider whether the draft gender pay gap regulations are fit for purpose and whether they will act as a catalyst for private sector litigation

The government recently published the draft Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2016, together with a short consultation document for which responses were required by 11 March 2016. Final regulations are expected by this summer, to come into force from October 2016. Large private and voluntary sector employers must take a snapshot of pay data in April 2017 and publish it within 12 months (by 30 April 2018). The reporting obligations will be extended to the public sector in due course.
