Gender pay gap
From 1 April 2017, new equal pay reporting requirements have been introduced by the government for all private and voluntary employers of over 250 people.
The new regulations in The Equality Act 2010 mean that large employers now must calculate and publish the average difference in salaries and bonuses among their male and female employees. Employers must also state the numbers of men and women achieving bonuses.
Data must be submitted every April, and the bonus data will also be required from previous 12 months
Employers have until 4 April 2018 to publish the results on the organisation’s website; the results must then remain online for a minimum of 3 years.
Organisations are free to provide further information alongside the results, but this is optional. If you would like further advice on equal pay reporting please get in touch.
