Swinson: Employers must be held to account over gender pay gap

by Ian Shires on 9 March, 2019

Image result for swinsonResponding to a new YouGov survey for Young Women’s Trust that 30% of employers have not tried to reduce their gender pay gap, Liberal Democrat Deputy Leader Jo Swinson said:

It is disappointing that one in three organisations have not tried to improve their gender pay gap.

Gender pay gap reporting has injected transparency in the debate on pay and equality in the workplace. But publishing numbers is not enough.

We must require employers to also report what they will do to reduce the gap in their organisations, so that employees and consumers can hold them to account when they fail to improve.

The Government must also provide better guidance and support to employers on how they can close their gender pay gap.
