Oxford City Council reveals its latest gender pay gap figures

Local News News

The latest gender pay gap report for the year ending 31st March 2018 confirms that the Council does not have a median gender pay gap for basic pay.

The report provides three key measures of equality: basic pay, bonuses and the proportion of males and females receiving a bonus

While the median gender pay gap for basic pay was 0%, the report does show a mean bonus pay gap of 6.3% in favour of female staff, which is the same figure as the previous year.  The council attribute this to a commission payment to one female member of staff. 

The biggest change was in the median gender bonus gap, which was 19.5% last year, and has been reduced to 0% this year. This represents a positive step in the campaign for gender pay equality.

Councillor Nigel Chapman. Board Member for Customer Focused Services, said: “Oxford City Council remains in a positive position when it comes to differences in rates of pay for men and women. We have a strong commitment to making sure that all of our staff are paid the correct rate and that no discrimination exists based on gender.”
