Publishing pay gap figures
If you’re an employer in Great Britain and have more than 250 staff, you must publish these figures about your organisation every year from April 2017:
the gender pay gap (mean and median averages)
the gender bonus gap (mean and median averages)
the proportion of men and women who receive bonuses
the proportion of men and women in each quartile of the organisation’s pay structure
These figures must be published on your own website and GOV.UK from April 2017. Details about how to do this will be published online.
To help you understand and implement the regulations, you can read the guidance on the Acas website. You’ll also find:
