Employers begin to publish their gender pay gap info on the government’s gender pay gap data website.

  • The Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 (SI 2017/172), which came into force on 6 April 2017, saw employers begin to publish their gender pay gap information on the government's gender pay gap data website.
  • This applies specifically to large private and voluntary sector employers.
  • The online portal provides the mandatory information that the Act requires, including percentage figures for the gender pay gap and gender bonus gap and the proportion of men and women within each pay quartile.
  • While there does not appear to be a facility to display any voluntary narrative with the gender pay gap data, employers may link to their gender pay gap report on their own website.
