Gender Pay Gap Employer Statement Guide

Employers have the opportunity to provide Employer Statement(s) that give context to their gender pay gap results.

From the 2023-24 reporting period, Employer Statements can be provided for each “corporate group”, as well as each subsidiary company (i.e. company within a corporate group with an individual ABN). This will allow employers to give context to any pay gaps in individual subsidiary companies (which will be made public alongside corporate group pay gaps for the 2023-24 year, onwards). 

The link to the Employer Statement will automatically be displayed alongside each employer’s gender pay gap on the WGEA Data Explorer.

The Gender Pay Gap Employer Statement Guide, available for download below, can help employers as they craft and prepare their Statements.

It is not mandatory to provide a Statement alongside your gender pay gap.
