Employers with 250 or more employees must publish and report specific figures about their gender pay gap

Equal pay and measuring the gender pay gap

The gender pay gap is different to equal pay. Equal pay relates to men and women receiving equal pay for equal work, not meeting this requirement has been unlawful UK for over 45 years. The gender pay gap is a measure of any disparity in pay between the average earnings of male and females.

This gap can be measured by gender pay gap reporting, which requires employers with 250 or more employees to publish various figures to demonstrate how large the gender pay gap between their male and female employees. As a public sector organisation the reporting of these figures demonstrates our compliance under the Public Sector Equality Duty.

From March 2017 all voluntary, private and public sector employers with 250 or more employees are required to publish:

  • average gender pay gap figures (mean and median)
  • the proportion of men and women in each quartile of the pay structure
  • the gender pay gaps for any bonuses paid out during the year
