Newsflash: More changes expected on pay gap reporting

gender-pay-gap-250It looks like there’s going to be more and more scrutiny on pay, and mandatory publication of pay data, from now on. Large employers are currently collecting their pay data in preparation for reporting their gender pay gaps from 30 April 2017 and this week Theresa May, preparing for her ‘coronation’ as Conservative leader and Prime Minister, has set out her plans for more major changes in relation to pay.

Speaking at her campaign press conference on 11 July, Theresa May unveiled her plans to make shareholder votes binding on executive remuneration and to oblige companies to publish data on the pay multiple between a company’s chief executive and the pay of their average worker.

This latter requirement appears to mirror the similar recent legislation in the USA which requires publically listed companies to publish the pay of their CEO and the average pay of their employees, to show the pay gap.
