Question for Women and Equalities

UIN HL169, tabled on 7 January 2020

To ask Her Majesty's Government what evaluation has been made of the decision to implement mandatory gender pay gap reporting.

Answered on

We have had two successful years of gender pay gap reporting so far, with over 10,000 employers publishing their data both years. Reporting provides an unprecedented level of transparency whilst driving board level discussions and pushing employers to take real action to close the gap.

We are keeping a close eye on progress to ensure that the legislation delivers on its aims, but it is important that we give the new regulations sufficient time to embed, to see how employers are responding and what actions they are taking, before considering any changes.
