Possible introduction of gender pay gap reporting for little companies

Hilary Spencer, the director of the Government Equalities Office, has announced that gender pay gap reporting will be established for little companies. The action was proposed in 2017 and companies with at least 250 employees must publicise their gender pay gap figures. Mr Spencer indicated that there may be further developments before the review in 2022, such as, requiring smaller companies to publicise their figures. This is as a result of the Trades Union Congress focussing on the need for companies to lessen their figures, to show that they are actively engaging in reporting, rather than doing so purely to conform with the requirement.
