Reporting

There is just under one week remaining in the 2019 WGEA report submission period, with reports due by Friday 31 May 2019.

Last month we invited all report contacts to complete a survey on the current online reporting system and the results are in.

In the last ten years, gender equality has become a growing priority for businesses and government across the globe. The maxim ‘what gets measured gets managed’ is truly accepted now.

Reporting season is almost upon us. The 2018-19 compliance reports are due for submission between 1 April and 31 May 2019.

Late last year, the Australian Government announced that the Workplace Gender Equality Agency would be allocated funds for the re-development of our data reporting system to improve the reporting process. 

New data collected from Australian employers on the status of women and men in the workplace will look at rates of promotion by gender as well as the impact of having children on workforce participation.

Australian employers with 100 or more staff are reminded to submit their annual gender equality report by Tuesday 31 May.

 This instrument is the Workplace Gender Equality (Minimum Standards) Instrument 2014.
