What's New?

In June's issue (EOR 258)

Diary: General Election 2015
As followers of my Twitter feed (@mhrubenstein) will know, I canvassed for Labour candidates in four marginal constituencies in London during the General Election campaign. Judged by the huge army of volunteers on the ground and by posters in the windows, it looked like it would be a Labour landslide.

Diary: Mandatory gender pay gap reporting
Section 78 of the Equality Act 2010 contains a power for Regulations to be made to "require employers to publish information relating to the pay of employees for the purpose of showing whether, by reference to factors of such description as is prescribed, there are differences in the pay of male and female employees". The power only relates to private and third sector organisations with 250 or more employees (public sector organisations are specifically excluded, presumably because they are subject to the public sector equality duty).
