That is why we are committed to review non-disclosure agreements and any evidence that is coming forward about how they are being used. The Government will also be publishing guidance on employee dress codes, so that employers and employees are aware of how these may constitute discrimination or lead to harassment in the workplace.</p><p>We are also committed to increasing diversity on FTSE boards and in senior executive roles. There is a higher percentage of women on company boards than ever before – more than doubling in the last six years. However, we need to maintain momentum and that is why we are supporting the work of the business led, Hampton-Alexander Review and their voluntary targets for 33% FTSE 350 board directors and senior executives to be women by 2020.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The majority of part-time workers are women, especially mothers of young children, and they often choose part-time work in order to balance work and family care. The unequal sharing of childcare responsibilities between men and women is a key driver of the gender pay gap. The Government is committed to tackling the gender pay gap, including through introducing a legal requirement for business to report their gender pay gaps in April this year. The Government has also taken measures to help parents to balance work and childcare. We introduced the right to request flexible working in 2014, and we have also introduced tax-free childcare and 30 hours free childcare for working parents of 3 and 4 year olds to support working families. We also launched a communications campaign on Shared Parental Leave on 12 February.</p><p>In response to Matthew Taylor’s Good Work report the Government will launch a joint taskforce with industry on flexible working to unlock the potential in the labour market, including amongst women.</p>

This had barely changed from 2016, showing that robust action is needed from businesses to achieve the Hampton-Alexander Review’s target of 33% by 2020.</p><p>To increase the level of ambition, the Hampton-Alexander Review has now extended the executive pipeline target of 33% women from the FTSE 100 to the wider FTSE 350 – around 1 in 2 of all new appointments needing to go to women to achieve this target by 2020. We will continue to support the Review to work collaboratively with business to disseminate the importance of diversity in executive roles.</p> more like this
