 Mandatory gender pay gap reporting

From 2017, any organisation that has 250 or more employees must publish and report specific figures about their gender pay gap.

The gender pay gap is the difference between the average earnings of men and women, expressed relative to men’s earnings. For example, ‘men earn 15% more than women per hour’.

Employers must both:

·         publish their gender pay gap data and a written statement on their public-facing website

·         report their data to government online - this service will be available on GOV.UK in spring 2017.

If your organisation has fewer than 250 employees, it can publish and report voluntarily but is not obliged to do so.

For more information on what needs to be published and how and when it needs to be reported please visit the GOV.UK website
