Gender pay gap reporting in Australia -- Time for an upgrade
Author/editor: Glennie, M, von Reibnitz, A, William, J, Curtis, S, Bordia, S
Australia has fallen from 14th to 70th on women’s economic participation in the World Economic Forum’s global gender gap index. The gender pay gap amongst full-time employees remains at 14.2%.
The purpose of Gender pay gap reporting in Australia --Time for an upgrade is to identify strengths and weaknesses of the current national gender pay gap reporting regime and recommend pathways to better enable the legislation to be a driving force for reducing, and ultimately eliminating, gender pay gaps.
The Australian case study, developed by researchers from the College of Business and Economics and GIWL, ANU, focuses on the Australian experience, drawing on insights from other countries for context to provide detailed examination of Australia’s current gender pay gap reporting arrangements and recommendations on where we can improve.
