Equality and diversity

On this page:

The council publishes detailed equality and diversity data on our workforce. It is important for staff from protected groups to receive equal treatment and for any unlawful discrimination to be eliminated. The council has a diverse workforce that reflects and serves well the many different groups within the city.

Gender pay gap report

The council is required by law to carry out Gender Pay Gap Reporting under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017. This involves carrying out calculations that show the difference between the average earnings of men and women in our council. It does not involve publishing individual employees’ data. 

The data used for the calculations is the Council’s pay data as of 31 March 2018.

Equalities in employment annual monitoring

The Equalities in Employment Annual Monitoring Report provides the breakdown of staff in the city council in terms of ethnicity, gender, age and disability and identifies other diversity trends. The city council has published annual monitoring reports on its workforce since 2004.

The equality reporting duties of the city council are regulated by the Equalities Act 2010 which replaces previous legislation. Under the act the city council has a single equality duty to consider the need to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations.
