A late amendment to the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill will have a big effect on big business.  Employers of 250 or more employees are to be required to publish their gender pay gap information, publically revealing the differences between the pay of male and female employees in their organisation.  New regulations to activate section 78 of the Equality Act are to be introduced within 12 months of the Bill becoming law, as a result of the Conservatives giving in to pressure from Liberal Democrat and Labour MPs to force large employers to do more to eliminate the gender pay gap, which currently stands at 9.4% for full time employees and almost 40% for part timers.
