Equal Pay Reporting - UK Gov Consultation

Concrew Training has been highlighting the need for equal pay audits for some time now and the deadline is drawing close.

Despite the voluntary reporting initiative being introduced in 2011 less than half a dozen companies have actually published details of their pay gender gap.
On 6th March the Government announced that they would move towards introducing mandatory reporting; these new measures will be introduced in 2016.
today 14 July 2015 saw the launch of a consultation on and around the details.  
More information here
The consultation closes in 06 September so interested parties need to respond quickly. 
Introducing Equal Pay auditing and reporting can be complex and those organisations affected, ie with more than 250 employees, need to start planning now.  
Concrew Training are pleased to be able to offer high value training and consultancy in this area.
