This paper argues that the government’s new pay gap reporting measures fail to provide any meaningful insight into equal or fair pay for men and women in the workplace.

It states that the requirement to measure pay gaps across entire organisations (rather than between comparable roles within organisations), as well as the omission of necessary data, renders the majority of the findings meaningless, and the paper gives examples of this.
