Introduction to Gender Pay Gap Reporting
The Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 requires all employers with 250 or more employees in the UK to publish details of their gender pay gap. Its aim is to achieve greater transparency about gender pay difference.
The analysis is based on data as at 5 April of each year. The gender pay gap shows the differences in the average pay between men and women.
This is different to equal pay. Equal pay requires that men and women who carry out the same or similar jobs - or work of equal value - are paid the same.
It is unlawful to pay people unequally because they are a man or a woman.
