Shop Floor: The gender pay gap, employment rights post Brexit and Theresa May's small business commissioner
The CMI says the gender pay gap is still at 23%, with the gap becoming worse as women progress through their careers. Nick discusses whether the headline figure of 23% disguises a very complicated picture. And what can and should smaller businesses be doing to generate a more even playing field between the sexes, both in terms of pay and promotion? Plus, what about Theresa May's small business commissioner, and what will happen to UK employment rights following Brexit?
