In 2018, businesses must publish the first set of information about the gender pay gap in their workforces. With the gender pay gap rarely out of the news, and with the risk of equal pay claims moving up the agenda of every audit committee, it is vital that external and in-house solicitors, general counsel, barristers, human resources directors, the board member who signs off the gender pay gap data for publication, and aggrieved employees all understand what the law requires.

This reliable and readable book will cover:

  • How to comply with the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017
  • Essential reading on the equal pay rules in the Equality Act 2010 and on the statutory code of practice
  • Practical issues and choices for businesses
  • Legal and commercial consequences of non-compliance
  • Expert commentary on the complex relationship between the gender pay gap and unequal pay
  • Expert advice on resolving equal pay disputes without litigation
  • How and why to conduct a best practice equal pay audit
