New WGEA Portal

WGEA Portal under development

The WGEA Portal is inaccessible from 5pm, 3 September 2020 whilst the development of the new reporting system is underway. If you are yet to submit your compliance report for the 2019-20 reporting period, please contact the Agency at wgea@wgea.gov.au or on (02) 9432 7000.

A new, easy to use reporting system

Over the past year, the Agency has been working hard to build a new, easy-to-use reporting system that makes the process easier for employers. Over the next few months, we will be sharing some of the features of the new system with you ahead of the next reporting cycle in 2021.

What is happening?

The new reporting portal comes from an Australian Government announcement in 2018 that the Workplace Gender Equality Agency would be allocated funds to redevelop our data reporting system. Since then, we have been working hard to bring the new system to life. The new WGEA Portal will be ready for use in April 2021.

What you told us:

The Agency sent out a survey in 2019 to find out what you wanted to see included in the new system. The top five things respondents wanted to see from our new system were:

  • That the process is as automated as possible
  • That the system aligns with their own HR, finance and/or payroll systems
  • Workplace profile errors are easier to correct
  • The system alerts users to errors faster
  • User-friendly screen design

We heard what you were saying and have looked at how we can make the reporting process easier for you to use. We’ve been busy developing a system that truly caters to your needs.

What do you need to do?

Keep an eye out for our updates! We will be sending out information every few weeks with details about new features and changes to the reporting process. 

As these changes are ongoing, we will keep you updated at every step of the process.

We encourage you to read and engage with content. If you have feedback on the changes, please complete our Feedback form
