Gender pay gap rules in detail

    Section 26a of the Equality and Anti-Discrimination Act, which came into force on 1 January 2018, provides that all employers must issue a statement on the current state of affairs with regard to gender equality in the company’s annual report. All companies have to report on gender pay differences, but companies with more than 50 employees are also obliged to issue a statement on measures implemented to promote all aspects of equality (racial, religious, gender etc).

    There are no civil penalties for non-compliance with the reporting duties, but there can be administrative and criminal sanctions.
