Failure to report gender pay gap could result in more than reputational damage
Employers could face legal consequences if they fail to comply with the new gender pay gap rules, which were published in draft form recently.
It had been suggested in earlier drafts that organisations that failed to comply would effectively be “shamed” into doing so.
This is the first time there has been any suggestion of penalising employers for non-compliance, despite much speculation over the final content of the Regulations.
The Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 were finally published yesterday after many months of waiting.
