Labour has launched a series of reforms to deliver a workplace revolution for women.

The next Labour government will implement a step-change in how women are treated at work by:

  • Creating a Workers’ Protection Agency to tackle the gender pay gap.
  • Increasing Statutory Maternity Pay from 9 to 12 months.
  • Giving workers the right to choose their working hours.
  • Requiring large employers to introduce a menopause workplace policy.
  • Tackling sexual harassment in the workplace.
  • Enshrining the role of equalities representatives in law.


Dawn Butler, Labour’s Shadow Women and Equalities Secretary, said:

“Labour will deliver a workplace revolution to bring about a step-change in how women are treated at work. We’ll boost pay, increase flexibility, and strengthen protections against harassment and discrimination.”
