Gender Pay Gap Conference For Employers: Prepare Your Organisation For Staff and Public Scrutiny

Date Wednesday 22 November 2017
Venue London - Danubius Hotel Regents Park, London NW8 7JT

UK companies with 250 or more employees will have to publish their gender pay gaps by 4th April 2018

Legislation for gender pay gap reporting came into force on 6th April 2017, affecting public, private and voluntary sector employers. The act requires employers to comply with a level of “unprecedented transparency” (Chartered Management Institute).

Despite unequal pay between genders doing the same job being illegal for 40 years, some published results thus far have shown significant gaps. For those employers, the subsequent backlash has been huge.

With the gender pay gap in the UK still standing at 18% overall, employers who continue to practise unequal gender pay risk with a serious reputational damage, staff tensions and disputes.

On 4th April 2018, employers must publish the results of their gender pay gap analysis on the company website, where it must remain in plain sight of all key stakeholders for at least 3 years.
