Gender Pay Gap Reporting (UK)

April 2018 was the deadline for private and public organisations with more than 250 employees to report their gender pay gap – the difference in
mean and median compensation between male and female employees. Public sector employers needed to report by 30 March. The publication of these figures on the gov.uk gender pay gap portal has drawn scrutiny from the press, the public, and current and potential employees of these organisations. But this is not a one-off exercise, employees now have to report their pay data annually.

For many employers, calculating these figures will have helped determine if their reward structure is fair and fit for purpose – for a few it may have even revealed areas where they could be at risk of equal pay claims.
