What is the gender pay gap?

The gender pay gap shows the difference between the average earnings of men and women.
Historically, the average male pay has been higher than the average female pay. As of December 2016, the Office for National Statistics stated that the gender pay gap is currently 18.1%.

As a result, from 2017, any employer with more than 250 employees are legally obliged to publish their gender pay gap on their website and report their gap to the government. The specific calculations are as follows:

  • Mean gender pay gap in hourly pay;
  • The median gender pay gap in hourly pay;
  • Mean bonus gender pay gap;
  • Median bonus gender pay gap;
  • The proportion of males and females receiving a bonus payment; and
  • The proportion of males and females in each quartile
  • The Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017
