Gender Pay Gap legislation requires all employers of 250 or more employees to publish their gender pay gap as at 31st March. The Trust published its first in March 2018.
Employers with more than 250 employees are required to publish the following information annually for all employees who are employed under a contract of employment. This includes those under Agenda for Change terms and conditions, medical staff and very senior managers. All calculations are made relating to the pay period in which the snapshot day falls. For the first year, this was the pay period including 31 March 2017.
- Calculate the hourly rate of ordinary pay relating to the pay period in which the snapshot day falls
- Calculate the difference between the mean hourly rate of ordinary pay of male and female employees, and the difference between the median hourly rate of ordinary pay of male and female employees
- Calculate the difference between the mean (and median) bonus pay paid to male and female employees
- Calculate the proportions of male and female employees who were paid bonus pay
- Calculate the proportions of male and female employees in the lower, lower middle, upper middle and upper quartile pay bands by number of employees rather than rate of pay
The information for the Gender Pay Gap Report is sourced from the Electronic Staff Record (ESR) system, which holds our employee data. The information has also been submitted to the Governments Gender Pay Gap reporting portal and will be monitored through the Trusts workforce governance structure.
