Pay Gap and Equal Pay Audit

The Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2016 came into force in 2017 requiring all organisations employing more than 250 employees to publish their Gender Pay Gap.   This is not the same as equal (or unequal) pay and is defined as the difference between the average pay of all men and the average pay or all women. The University has committed to eliminating the Gender Pay Gap by 2030 and through working groups has developed actions to achieve this goal.

An equal pay review seeks to establish if there are any significant pay gaps for those undertaking “equal work”. Roles that fall within the same grade are considered to be rated as equivalent value.  The analysis will determine whether further investigation is required to establish the extent to which any gaps can be objectively justified and what action is required, if any, to deal with unjustified inequality. Since 2017 and Equal pay analysis is included in the Gender Pay Gap Report.
