Gender pay gap reporting: what are the implications for law firms?

As new rules are ushered in on gender pay gap reporting, Legal Week investigates what it means for law firms


Today (6 April), new regulations have been introduced that require UK companies with more than 250 employees to publish details of the pay gap between their male and female employees.

Employers have 12 months to publish six key calculations, including mean and median gender pay gap figures, the proportion of men and women in each quarter of their pay structure, and details of bonus pay gaps, with the information required to be posted on both their own websites and a government site.
