Don’t forget about gender pay gap reporting!

The BBC has, once again, found itself amongst a media storm after publishing the salaries of its highest paid stars. It transpired that Gary Lineker was paid ten times more than Clare Balding and the BBC’s highest paid woman, Claudia Winkleman, was paid just a fifth of what its best paid male star, Chris Evans, earnt. Once again the gender pay gap is a hot topic.

The gender pay gap reporting regulations came into force on 6 April 2017. Any company who, as of 5th April 2017, had 250 or more relevant employees will need to comply with these regulations by completing a report that needs to be published by 4 April 2018.
