United Kingdom - Gender pay gap regulation starts - April 30, 2017

Around 9,000 employers and more than 15 million employees – almost half of the country’s workforce – will be covered by a new regulation on gender pay gap reporting. The regulation requires organisations to publish their median gender pay gap, their mean gender pay gap, the proportion of men and women in each quartile of their pay structure, and gender differences in any bonus pay-outs. The current pay gap is 18.1%. In 2016, the Fawcett Society reported that if the gap continues to narrow at its current rate, parity will not be seen for another 60 years.
