Government announcement of new measures to eradicate gender pay inequality

On 25 October 2015, the Prime Minister announced measures to remove barriers to success in the workplace including: requiring large employers to publish information about their bonuses for men and women, extending the plan for gender pay gap reporting to the public sector, and working with business to eliminate all-male boards in the FTSE 350.

The announcement is part of a wider plan to help women and black and ethnic minority groups as part of the Government’s determination to extend opportunity to all.
