The City Solicitor & Head of Human Resources presented the Gender Pay Gap Report, which was a requirement of the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017, for local authorities who employed more than 250 or more employees. Members were informed that this data was at one given point in time, the average rate of pay for females was higher than males across the Council and this went against the national trend which was in favour of men.
RECOMMENDED to Council that:-
(1) the report be reviewed annually to track the relationship between both female and male earnings; and
(2) the Gender Pay Gap Report be published on the Exeter City Council website and on the centrally held database on gov.uk.
