Gender pay gap reports highlight gender pay discrepancies within an organisation, and help businesses to monitor trends, identify patterns and demonstrate progress towards achieving gender equality in the workplace. Publishing these reports every year is mandatory for companies with 250 employees or more.
Equal pay and gender pay gaps both deal with pay disparities at work, but they’re not to be confused as the same. Equal pay means that men and women performing equal work, or work of equal value, must receive equal pay. Whereas the gender pay gap measures the difference between men and women’s average earnings in an organisation.
