As some of you may be aware, in 2012, the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace (EOWA) Act 1999 was renamed Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012. The act has a new focus on improving gender equality at work by offering both women and men the same opportunities and looking to balance paid work and caring/family responsibilities.
This legislation is administered by the Workplace Gender Equality (WGE) Agency and requires organisations with more than 100 employees to annually report their gender profile.
