Will Irish Employers Have to Report on the Gender Pay Gap?

Irish Gender Pay Gap Reporting

Proposals are in place to institute gender pay gap reporting in Ireland for employers in both the public and private sector, with employers expected to publish gender pay gaps in relation to hourly rates of pay, benefits in kind, and bonuses.

Unlike the UK reporting framework, the size of organisations expected to report will fall over time:

• Starting with 250+ employees

• Falling to 150+ employees after two years

• Falling to 50+ employees after a further 12 months

It is anticipated that Irish employers who fail to adhere to the reporting requirements will face significant fines and be subject to Circuit Court compliance orders. There may also be scope for on-site inspections by the Workplace Relations Commission.
