The gender pay gap is the difference between the average (mean or median) earnings of men and women across a workforce.
Gender pay gap calculations are based on employer payroll data drawn from a specific date each year. DHU is set the snapshot date of 5 April. We must report and publish our gender pay gap information by 4 April of the following year and include a written statement.
From 2017, employers with a headcount of 250 must comply with the Law on gender pay gap reporting. It is a legal requirement to publish a gender pay report within one year of the snapshot date.
