Gender Equality – What it means for Employers
The Workplace Gender Equality Agency will publish the gender pay gaps for every Australian employer with 100 or more employees on 27 February 2024.
The change according the WGEA is part of a package of legislative reforms aimed at reducing the gender pay gap, which currently stands at 21.7% (total remuneration). While the gender pay gap decreased by 1.1pp in the past 12 months, change has been slow and sometimes stagnant.
Employer gender pay gaps will be available on individual employer pages on WGEA’s Data Explorer. This platform has been recently updated and is a great tool for deeper insights into gender equality performance and outcomes and comparing results across employers and industries.
