The Essential Guide to Gender Pay Gap Reporting

3-hour course

Course overview

The introduction of mandatory Gender Pay Gap Reporting in the UK in 2017 was one of the biggest changes faced by employers in recent years. If your organisation has more than 250 people (workers and employees combined), then your HR and payroll teams must comply with the new regulations and publish your Gender Pay Gap Report by 4th April each year (31st March for the public sector). Before you publish the report each year, it is crucial that you understand the background to the statistics and have an effective plan in place to communicate any remedial action.

This course is a detailed guide to the Gender Pay Gap Reporting regulations. It will give you a comprehensive understanding and strategic view of the many complex tasks you need to complete in order to comply with the rules and avoid financial and reputational damage. Many of these tasks will need manual intervention as there is probably little functionality in your payroll or HR systems to assist you.
