The Government published a revised version of the draft Regulations setting out the gender pay gap (GPG) reporting duty on 6 December 2016, making a number of changes to the duty, which comes into force on 6 April 2017.
Revisions include bringing forward the “snapshot date” on which employers must capture their data, and clarification of how employers should deal with employees on maternity leave and other family-related leave when calculating their gender pay gap. The changes also clarify who counts as an employee for the purposes of the duty.
XpertHR updated its FAQs on the gender pay gap reporting duty to reflect the revised Regulations and a new FAQ summarising the changes became the most popular question in December. Hot on its heels were questions around the General Data Protection Regulation and the apprenticeship levy.
