Carolyn Fairbairn, CBI Director-General, said:

"League tables should not be used to name and shame firms, as data will only be able to present a partial picture, particularly given factors such as the mix of part-time and full working and sectoral differences. 

"Where reporting can be useful is as a prompt for companies to ask the right questions about how they can eradicate the gender pay gap.  

"The Government should consult closely with business to ensure that this new legislation helps close the gender pay gap, rather than ending up as a box-ticking exercise."
