Mind the pay gap guidance

01 March 2014

This paper provides a quick guide to a new piece of regulation which will have a significant effect on large employers from April 2017. The paper outlines the key planks for the policy and aims to provide managers with the key facts about what will be required of businesses that fall within its scope, rather than being a detailed implementation guide.

It also summarises the case for the policy, which has been strongly supported by CMI on the basis of the extensive evidence about the gender pay gap that persists today. Supporting diversity is core to good management and leadership and, ultimately, to delivering strong and sustainable business performance.

CMI has been a member of the Business Reference Group formed by the Government Equalities Office (GEO) to consult on the development of the regulations. The content is up to date as of early August 2016, but it is possible that any subsequent changes to the regulations will require this briefing to be updated.
