What countries does this apply to?

  • England
  • Scotland
  • Wales

If you are an employer in the private or voluntary sectors with 250 or more employees, you must publish your gender pay gap data every year. This also applies to specified public-sector employers in England (and a limited number of non-devolved bodies).

Which regulations apply to me?

The Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 apply to all private and voluntary sector employers with 250 or more employees.

The Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017 apply to specified English authorities, specified cross-border authorities and specified non-devolved authorities across England, Scotland and Wales.

This guidance relates to public bodies in England and Great Britain’s private and voluntary bodies only. Find out about the specific duties in Scotland and the specific duties in Wales.
