Gender Pay Gap Reporting

Gender pay gap reporting legislation will require large employers (with 250 or more employees) to publish their overall mean and median gender pay gaps from 2018. Under the new laws, employers will have to calculate their gender pay gap from April 2017 and publish the details by April 2018.

Information to be reported:

  • Overall Gender Pay Gap – mean and median
  • Mean Gender Bonus Gap
  • Proportion of men and proportion of women employees who receive bonuses
  • Gender pay slit breakdown between quartile pay bands

Pay includes the following:

  • Salaries
  • Bonuses
  • Basic pay
  • Statutory Payments
  • Shift premium
  • Car allowances
  • On call / stand by monies
  • First aid allowances

Not to be included:

  • Overtime
  • Expenses
  • Salary Sacrifice amounts
  • Benefits In Kind
  • Redundancy
  • Tax credits

Businesses would be well advised to make sure they have the relevant data available, and start work on the identification of any gaps, and identify measures to address them ready for this to be implemented in April 2017 and April 2018. This will require an upload to the employer’s website and a government website and there will be a database of complying employers.
