While gender pay reporting currently only applies to organisations employing over 250 people, it’s advisable that any organisation employing over 100 people take a keen interest in the legislation as the rules could be rolled out more broadly over time. Although organisations employing less than 250 people aren’t obliged to report, they can do so if they wish.
Reporting deadlines are now just days away. The 31 March and 5 April each year are the “snapshot” dates for reporting for public bodies and private entities/charities respectively. Organisations must publish their gender pay gap data within one year of these snapshot dates.
