Many decades of advocacy and raising awareness of the critical importance of mandatory pay gap reporting is starting to pay off, with the Government announcing their plan to introduce a mandatory gender pay gap reporting system for NZ.
If drafted and passed, the new law would make it mandatory for businesses with 250+ staff to publicly disclose their gender pay gap, expanding to businesses with 100+ employees after four years of reporting.
Tireless passion and dedication from the team at MindTheGap, backed all the way by Clare, has driven this campaign all the way to Parliament, with hundreds of businesses already committed to pay gap reporting ahead of the legislation coming into effect. a huge thanks to Jo Cribb, Dellwyn Stuart, Cas Carter, Nina Santos and many many more awesome wāhine who’ve been advocating for this for years.
“This announcement truly signals a step-change on the pathway to enforcing pay gap reporting in Aotearoa”, said Anna Stuck, Clare co-founder. “We are so proud of the hard work done by MindTheGap to keep momentum and awareness going around this issue for so long, and share in their celebration that the Government is now moving with pace to see it introduced.”
