From 2017 all Employers with 250 or more employees must publish and report specific figures about the difference between the average earnings of men and women, expressed relative to men’s earnings, for example, ‘women earn 15% less than men per hour’. This is known as ‘The Gender Pay Gap’.

DHU Healthcare has published its gender pay gap figures since 2017 (see below) using the data taken from our April Payroll run.

DHU must follow the appropriate regulations to calculate and provide:

  • Mean gender pay gap
  • Median gender pay gap
  • Mean bonus gender pay gap
  • Median bonus gender pay gap
  • Proportion of males receiving a bonus payment
  • Proportion of females receiving a bonus payment
  • Proportion of males and females in each quartile pay band
  • A written statement, authorised by an appropriate senior person, which confirms the accuracy of their calculations.

The information must be published on both the employer’s website and on a designated government website at

The report must also include each part time worker who will count as one employee for gender pay reporting purposes. If an employer uses job-share arrangements then every employee within a job-share counts as one employee each for gender pay reporting purposes.

Agency workers will form part of the headcount of the agency that provides them, and are not included in DHU numbers. Similarly any individual who is employed by their own service company contracted to DHU, would be caught by the headcount of employees for the service company if it employs 250 or more employees, not by the end user.

It is a legal requirement for all relevant employers to publish their gender pay report. Failing to do this within one year of the snapshot date is unlawful. The Equality and Human Rights Commission has the power to enforce any failure to comply with the regulations. DHU will also run a reputational risk if the information is not published.
