star this property answer text <p>The Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Bodies) regulations introduced mandatory gender pay gap reporting in 2017 to large public sector employers in England and non-devolved authorities. The threshold of 250 employees was determined following a public consultation and mirrors the requirements for employers in the private and voluntary sectors. The employee threshold and other aspects of the reporting metrics is under review to assess their effectiveness in exposing the causes of the pay gap in individual organisations and employers’ progress in tackling them. We will use this evidence to consider changes to the reporting legislation, consulting on any proposed amendments by 2021.</p><p> </p><p>Equal pay statements are not required outside of Scotland and the policy is therefore not subject to review by central Government. However, in 2020 we will review the enforcement of equal pay legislation more broadly, to ensure it is working as effectively as possible.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Since introducing regulations in 2017, organisations with 250 or more employees are required to publish gender pay gap data on an annual basis. This has sparked a national conversation, as well as prompting conversations in boardrooms across the country. The unparalleled level of transparency brings to light where inequalities exist, and is inspiring action from employers to bring about change.</p><p> </p><p>The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy have consulted on how best to implement mandatory ethnicity pay reporting, including questions on the main benefits for employers in reporting ethnicity pay information and which employers it should apply to. They received over 300 detailed responses to the consultation and will set out next steps in due course.</p> more like this

Since the European Social Charter came into force in the UK we have introduced a number of policy and legislative reforms that provide equivalent or greater protections for individuals in the field of equal pay.</p><p> </p><p>We have also ratified a number of international conventions which provide equivalent protections and which the UK has implemented via national legislation.</p><p> </p><p>We are fully committed to the Equal Pay protections in the Equality Act 2010. In 2014, we introduced equal pay audits for when employers are found to have breached equal pay law and in 2017 we introduced gender pay gap reporting.</p><p> </p><p>Our equal pay legislation complies with EU requirements, which are reflected in Article 4.3 of the European Social Charter. We are committed to ensure that the robust protections provided by Equality Acts 2006 and 2010 and equivalent legislation in Northern Ireland continue to apply after the UK leaves the EU, as will Article 157 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, which will become part of EU-retained law.</p>
