The deadline for employers to report their gender pay gaps passed at midnight on 4 April. At that point, 10,016 organisations had uploaded their data to the government's gender pay gap reporting website.
The requirement for "relevant employers" - those with 250 or more employees - to report their pay gap data is set out in The Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.
The Regulations mandate six metrics that must be reported, and specify both the data that should be included in the calculations and the methodology to be used. Relevant employers are expected to publish their data both on the government website and on their own website.
Although some organisations are expected to report their data later than the legal deadline, an XpertHR analysis of the data published on the morning after deadline day reveals the following headline figures. The figures are based on the mean average for each measure; alternative methodologies will produce different results.
