Under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 that came into force in April 2017, UK organisations that have 250 or more employees must publish and report information relating to their gender pay gap.
The gender pay gap is the percentage difference between average hourly earnings for men and women in a workforce.
