Government reforms (3): Gender Pay Gap – ACAS final guidance

What do we already know?

We have been keeping you up to date on the Government’s proposals to introduce new gender pay reporting requirements and how our Gender Pay Gap Audit service can help you with this. For an overview of the reporting requirements see our February 2016 Newsletter Government reforms (2): Gender pay – mend the gap!

Private and voluntary sector employers will be required to publish their first Gender Pay Gap (GPG) data based on their April 2017 payroll (for those employed on 5 April 2017), while public sector employers will be required to publish their GPG data based on their March 2017 payroll (for those employed on 31 March 2017).

We updated you in our February 2017 Newsflash Acas publishes draft GPG guidance that ACAS had published non-statutory guidance on Gender Pay Gap reporting in draft form.

What’s new?

ACAS and the Government Equalities Office (GEO) has now published a revised, final version of the non-statutory guidance on GPG reporting, available here.

Although the GEO had indicated that no substantive changes were expected to the original draft, in fact there are a few significant changes which helpfully address some of the areas of uncertainty in the draft guidance, in particular in relation to salaried partners and LLP members, casual workers and contractors, pension contributions and bonuses:

We will continue to monitor all developments in this ACAS guidance and all other aspects of the GPG reporting duty and will keep you up-to-date.  If you have any questions, please do get in touch with us.  We’d be very happy to help.
