Closing the public sector pay gap

Read the CIPD's submission to the Government Equalities Office

On 18 August 2016, the Government Equalities Office (GEO) launched a consultation on proposals to extend mandatory gender pay gap reporting – due to be introduced for private and voluntary sector organisations of 250 or more staff early next year – into the public sector.

The CIPD has been a key stakeholder for the GEO in formulating these proposals, and you can see our previous responses to the initial consultations on mandatory gender pay gap reporting from 8 September 2015 and 1 March 2016 below.
