Gender pay gap reporting

Overview

The Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017 came into effect on 31 March 2017, which requires public sector authorities with 250 or more employees to publish statutory calculations every year showing how large the pay gap is between their male and female employees. Lincolnshire Police employ around 1,500 people, and therefore the results of our calculations can be found below.

What is gender pay reporting?

It is important to recognise that gender pay reporting is not the same as equal pay. Equal pay is ensuring equal pay for equal work, however gender pay reporting compares hourly rates of pay and any bonuses staff may receive by gender, seeking to expose any imbalance. 

Based on the results, steps will be taken, where possible, to minimise or readdress any identified inequities going forward.

Summary

Lincolnshire Police are committed to equality of opportunity and the equal treatment of all employees regardless of protected characteristics, and therefore we are pleased that we have a gender pay gap which is 7.8% lower than the national average figures for the public sector. (Office of National Statistics 2017).

Our major issue regarding the gender pay gap relates to differences in the advancement of women.  The Chief Officer team are determined to ensure that opportunities are provided to all our officers and staff to progress through the grades and ranks.  We remain committed to ensuring fairness and inclusivity within Lincolnshire Police, and acknowledge the many benefits this brings to our organisation.
