star this property answer text <p>In 2017 the Government introduced ground-breaking regulations requiring large employers, in both the public and private sector, to publish annually the differences between what they pay their male and female staff in average salaries and bonuses. They must do this by the deadlines of March 30th for public sector organisations, and April 4th for private and voluntary organisations</p><p>The transparency generated by these regulations will motivate employers to identify barriers to women’s progression in the workplace, and to take action to address them. It will also drive employers to increase awareness of the work they are already undertaking to achieve gender equality.</p> more like this

The consultation will run for at least 12 weeks.</p><p>We have been using the time since announcing our intention to consult, to analyse the responses from transgender people who responded to our National LGBT survey. In this survey, we asked about the views and experiences of transgender people who have applied for a Gender Recognition Certificate under the GRA. We will publish the results of this survey shortly.</p><p>Ahead of the consultation launch, we have also begun engaging with a wide range of people and organisations. These organisations include transgender, LGBT, women’s rights and faith groups.</p><p>The Government recognises that there are a wide range of views on how we might reform the Act. It has been valuable to hear these different voices prior to the consultation and we will continue to engage with stakeholders before, during, and after the consultation.</p><p>We are also working across Whitehall to ensure we fully understand what impact there could be from any reform to the Gender Recognition Act.</p>
