The Gender Pay Gap Information Bill NWCI Recommended Amendments
Published: Wednesday, May 15, 2019
The National Women’s Council of Ireland (NWCI) warmly welcomes the Gender Pay Gap Information Bill 2019 and the development of meaningful interventions to improve women’s careers and workforce diversity and inclusion. The Bill introduces some important provisions and once implemented will contribute to a more open, transparent and balanced society. However, we believe the Bill can be stronger, and we propose a number of recommendations. For more information see our Joint Letter with SIPTU FORSA and ICTU to the Joint Committee on Justice & Equality (January 2019), our Opening Statement to the Joint Committee on Justice & Equality (November 2018), our Paper on Pay Transparency (July 2018), and our Publication on How to Close the Gender Pay Gap (November 2017).
