Have your say on workplace gender reporting

The Government has today announced it will start consulting on workplace gender equality reporting requirements, so don't miss your chance to be heard.

According to Minister for Employment, Senator Eric Abetz, the Government wants to "get the balance right between getting meaningful information from employers that can help drive results in the workplace, and making sure it's not a burden for businesses to provide it".

"Employers with 100 employees or more will continue to be required to report annually against gender equality indicators now and in the future," he said.

"We particularly want to hear the views of employers who have recently reported to the Workplace Gender Equality Agency using the online system for the first time."

Any changes to the current reporting requirements will be announced before the next reporting period starts on 1 April 2015.

Public submissions, including an option for employers to complete a short survey, open today and close at 5pm, Thursday 31 July.
