Gender Pay Reporting

The Gender Pay Gap reporting regulations

Large employers are legally required to publish gender pay gap data on their own website and on this government website. The rules are slightly different for employees in the public sector and those in the private and voluntary sectors.

Public Sector

Most public sector employers must follow The Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017. This includes most government departments, the armed forces, local authorities, NHS bodies, maintained schools and Academy Trusts and universities. The full list can be found in Schedule 2 of the regulations. If a public sector employer is not listed in Schedule 2 then they must report under the private and voluntary sector regulations.

If a public sector employer listed in Schedule 2 has 250 or more staff on 31 March, then they must publish their data by 30 March of the following year.

Fortis employs fewer than 250 staff.
