From 2017, any organisation that has 250 or more employees must publish and report specific figures about their gender pay gap. The gender pay gap is the difference between the average earnings of men and women, expressed relative to men's earnings. This is distinct from equal pay where men and women in the same job/role perform equal work and receive equal pay. The 2017 Gender Pay Gap Report can be accessed here:
