UK firms to reveal bossstaff pay gaps under draft law

first_img Citation: UK firms to reveal boss-staff pay gaps under draft law (2018, June 11) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-06-uk-firms-reveal-boss-staff-gaps.html This document is subject to copyright.

All public companies with more than 250 employees will have to disclose and explain every year their “pay ratios” under legislation planned to come into effect from January 2019.”Most of the UK’s largest companies get their business practices right but we understand the anger of workers and shareholders when bosses’ pay is out of step with company performance,” Business Secretary Greg Clark said in a statement.”Requiring large companies to publish their pay gaps will build on that reputation by improving transparency and boosting accountability at the highest levels, while helping build a fairer economy that works for everyone,” he said.The move comes after years of shareholder and public outrage over the pay for top executives, including at companies that have performed poorly. There has been a series of shareholder rebellions over pay at company annual general meetings this year.Frances O’Grady, leader of Britain’s Trades Union Congress, said: “Publishing and justifying pay ratios is a first step, but more is needed.”Fat-cat bosses are masters of self-justification and shrugging off public outcry. New rules are needed to make sure they change,” she said, calling for worker representatives to be included on boardroom pay committees for added fairness.Rebecca Long Bailey, business spokeswoman for the main opposition Labour Party, said the proposals were “half-baked” and “do nothing to tackle the entrenched inequality”.The government earlier this year implemented legislation forcing all UK companies with 250 or more employees to publish details of the salary difference between male and female employees.center_img All companies with more than 250 employees will have to disclose and explain their “pay ratios” London firm revamps pay by letting staff set salaries Explore furtherlast_img read more
