Gender Pay Gap Bill
The Federal Government has introduced the Workplace Gender Equality Amendment (Closing the Gender Pay Gap) Bill 2023 into Parliament.
Amongst other things, the Bill will require the publishing of gender pay gaps of employers with 100 or more workers.
The Minister for Women, Senator the Hon Katy Gallagher, said “on average, women working full-time can expect to earn 14.1 per cent less than men per week in their pay packets”.
“On current projections it will take another 26 years to close the gender pay gap”.
Global experience shows that transparency encourages organisations to take action to close the gap.
