Women and Equalities: Gender Pay Gap: Action Plans

Mike Wood: What sanctions are available if companies fail to meet their legal obligations to help to close the gender pay gap?

 

Amber Rudd (The Secretary of State for the Home Department, Minister for Women and Equalities)

What is the law is that gender pay gap reporting takes place. The EHRC has the ability to take measures that can end up with fines and further sanctions. In terms of proposals for companies to actually close the gap themselves, we encourage them to put forward their own plans.
