Workplace gender equality

The Commonwealth Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012 commenced on 6 December 2012.
The Act requires employers with more than 100 employees to report against standardised gender equality indicators which should be set prior to the beginning of the reporting period in which they apply. As soon as reasonably practical after lodging the report, employers must inform employees and any members or shareholders that the report is being lodged and how it may be accessed. The reports for the first full reporting period for 2013–14 must be submitted between 1 April and 31 May 2014.
