Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (Gender Pay Gap Information) Bill 2017: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to require certain employers to publish information relating to the pay of employees for the purpose of showing whether there are differences in the pay of male and female employees and, if so, the nature and scale of such differences; for that purpose to amend the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission Act 2014; and to provide for related matters.

Is there a seconder?

I second the proposal.

Question put and agreed to.

When is it proposed to take Second Stage?

Is that agreed? Agreed.

Second Stage ordered for Tuesday, 23 May 2017.
