Gender pay gap

What we do

Gender pay gap reporting came into effect from April 2017 and requires organisations with 250 or more employees to publish and report specific figures about their gender pay gap – the difference between the average (mean and median) earnings of males and females, expressed relative to males’ earnings.

All public-sector organisations must publish a set of figures and information about their gender pay gaps by 30th March each year based on a reference date (snaphot date) of 31st March in the previous year.

The set of figures required include:

  • The difference in the mean pay of full-pay males and females, expressed as a percentage
  • The difference in the median pay of full-pay males and females, expressed as a percentage
  • The difference in mean bonus pay of males and females, expressed as a percentage
  • The difference in median bonus pay of males and females, expressed as a percentage
  • The proportion of males and females who received bonus pay
  • The proportion of full-pay males and females in each of four quartile pay bands
