2. Gender Pay Gap Report

Introduction

Under the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017 from April 2017 employers with 250 or more employees are required to publish statutory gender pay gap calculations every year.

The data must be a snapshot of salary data on 31 March every year and under normal circumstances must be published on both the government website and Gravesham’s own website by 30 March the following year.

The information that is required is set out below:
