Under the Equality Act 2010, West Sussex County Council (WSCC) is required to publish its gender pay gap.
A gender pay gap, which is different to equal pay*, is the difference between men’s and women’s hourly earnings expressed as a percentage of the men’s earnings. This is based on averages and looks at the percentage of each gender in the workforce.
We are committed to closing our gender pay gap and we are pleased that year on year progress is being made.
*Equal pay relates to men and women receiving equal pay for carrying out work of equal value. We have a job evaluation system and policies in place to ensure this.
