3 APRIL 2018

Despite the Equal Pay Act 47 years ago, women still earn less than men in Britain today.

The most recent stats from the ONS’ Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE) show that the mean gender pay gap for full time workers is 14.1%.[1]

By 4th April all organisations with over 250 employees are legally required to have published their gender pay gap data. In the run up to the deadline, many employers have not yet published.

In this briefing you will find:

  • The difference between the gender pay gap and equal pay
  • A summary of gender pay gap reporting regulations and how the gender pay gap is calculated
  • Frequently asked questions related to gender pay gap reporting, including why employers may have a large gender pay gap and bonus pay gap
  • Guidelines on what you can do if your employer has a gender pay gap 
  • Fawcett's recommendations on closing the gender pay gap
