No Small Change: The Economic Potential of Closing the Gender Pay Gap. [SP Paper 179, 6th Report (Session 5)]


Mon, 26 Jun 2017

An Economy, Jobs and Fair Work Committee report argues that the Scottish Government could use devolved powers to help close the gender pay gap and boost Scotland's economy. Recommendations include: making care a Scottish Government priority sector; developing a new, appropriately resourced programme for people returning to work; and ensuring that all roles within the Scottish Government, its agencies, and the Scottish Parliament are advertised as flexible, agile or part-time, unless there is a business reason not to do so.
