star this property answer text <p>For the first time, all employers with 250 or more employees are required to publish their gender pay gap before 4 April 2018. The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has powers to enforce compliance with this requirement. The EHRC has published a policy paper on its intended approach to enforcement here https://www.equalityhumanrights.com/en/publication-download/closing-gap-enforcing-gender-pay-gap-regulations.</p><p>More generally, the EHRC's 2017-18 Business Plan commits it to working with employers to demonstrate how changes to recruitment, retention, pay decisions and career pipelines can narrow pay gaps.</p> more like this
