Gender pay gap reporting

The UK is one of the first countries to introduce gender pay gap reporting, requiring employers – including those in Scotland – to publish their gender pay gap.  The overall median gender pay gap in Scotland is 16.3%, and the full-time gender pay gap is 7.1%.

Ensuring that women have the same opportunities as men to fulfil their potential in the workplace is a key part of building a country that works for everyone.

Private and voluntary sector employers with 250 or more employees will be required to publish their figures by 4 April every year.

Most employers will have a gender pay gap, but shining a light on where women are being held back means employers can take action to close their gap.

You can find and compare gender pay gap data for organisations in the UK, including:

  • the average difference between men and women’s hourly and bonus pay
  • the percentage of men and women in the highest, middle and lowest pay groups in a company

You can also download data by organisation size or business sector.
