Gender Pay Gap
One area we know employers find particularly challenging is the new legislation on the Gender Pay Gap.
MPW applaud the aim of the Government to try to “tackle the complex drivers of the pay gap” and produce proposals which will be “Proportionate and effective” (quotes from Nicky Morgan in the Foreword to the current Consultation).
However, we regret that the outcome so far – the draft Regulations which are the subject of this Consultation – appears to us to be disappointingly simplistic.
We have worked extensively on the draft legislation with Tom Flanagan Consulting (whom we collaborate with on a number of UK employment initiatives).
We are working with companies on how to approach this legislation immediately and over coming years.
