Gender Pay Gap Reporting & Compliance Advice for Business
Similar obligations apply to the public sector from 30 April 2017. Lupton Fawcett’s team of employment lawyers is here to ensure you and your business understand the requirements and can assist you in the event you receive equal pay claims or enquiries.
Our multi-award-winning team regularly assists employers who are facing equal pay claims and enquiries and can provide guidance and training on your gender pay gap reporting requirements and outcomes. The Government expects the increased transparency to increase the speed of closure of the current pay gap between the sexes. With employees, unions, the media and public able to scrutinise the figures, organisations that fail to report or fail to take steps to improve their figures may face negative media reports, struggle to recruit and retain quality staff and, on a worst case scenario, may face having to defend a costly claim.
With offices in Leeds, Sheffield and York, we have a team of experts ready to talk to you. To speak to a member of our team, call us on 0333 323 5292. Alternatively, send us an email or fill in our online enquiry form to let us know that you would like to hear from us and we will get back to you shortly.
The reporting requirements
Gender pay gap results must be published on the organisation’s website and uploaded to a government site annually. The information must be retained on the website for 3 years.
