The Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017 came into effect on 31 March 2017, which requires public sector authorities with 250 or more employees to publish statutory figures every year showing how large the pay gap is between their male and female employees.
What is gender pay reporting?
It is important to understand that pay for both police officers and staff is determined nationally and to recognise that gender pay reporting is not the same as equal pay. Equal pay is ensuring equal pay for equal work; however gender pay reporting compares hourly rates of pay and any bonuses staff may receive by gender, seeking to expose any imbalance.
Based on the results, steps will be taken, where possible, to minimise or readdress any identified inequities going forward.
