Gender Pay Gap

Following new legislation, we have published the council's 'gender pay gap' figures for 2017.

The figures show the difference between average earnings of males and females working across the authority.

The gender pay gap reflects the overall difference between how much women and men are paid, but does not take into account the type of work people do. It should not be confused with unequal pay, which is the unlawful practice of paying males and females differently for performing the same or similar work, or work of equal value.

The figures have been published in response to new national legislation which requires employers with more than 250 employees to publish gender pay gap information each year. The aim of this is to increase awareness and improve pay equality across the country.
