What the gender pay gap is

The gender pay gap shows the difference in average pay between all men and women in an organisation.

It is different to equal pay, which examines the pay differences between men and women who carry out the same or similar jobs, or work of equal value. It is unlawful to pay people unequally because they are a man or a woman.
