Gender pay gap


The gender pay gap is an equality measure that shows the difference in average earnings between women and men.  It is expressed as a percentage of men’s earnings.

The UK government introduced mandatory reporting of the gender pay gap on 6 April 2017. Voluntary, private and public sector employers with 250 or more employees are required to publish their figures annually.  The council is required to capture a snapshot of data as of 31 March every year and publish the findings by 30 March of the following year.
