I recently posted that the real teeth of the Gender Pay Gap Regulations lay in the potential impact upon an employer's recruitment and retention strategy. See the full blog here

Carrie Gracie's recent high profile resignation from the BBC demonstrates the point perfectly.

If you haven't already done so, employers with over 250 employees should give very careful consideration to the potential impact of the reporting requirements laid down within the new regulations.

Indeed, all employers are well advised to  undertake an equal pay audit and to address gender pay differentials. 

Quite rightly, the issue of Equal Pay is likely to be a hot topic for all employers in 2018.
