To stimulate further action to narrow the gender pay gap, in 2016 the government introduced a requirement for large employers to publish data on the gender pay gap within their organisation. The deadline for publishing the first wave of data was April 2018.
The regulations – and the data they have generated – have prompted a lively debate on the gender pay gap and the role of transparency in tackling pay inequalities.
