This is the third year the Scottish Parliament has reported on the Gender Pay Gap (GPG). The main findings from this year's report are:
- The Gender Pay Gap for 2018 is 2.9%. This is a reduction of 0.9% from 3.8% in 2017.
- The GPG has remained within the tolerance level of plus or minus 5% as set in the first year of reporting (2016).
- The gap between the full time male staff to part time female staff is 2.9%. This is in significant contrast to the Scottish population where the pay gap for this measure is 33.6%.
The findings from the report will be incorporated into the Diversity Delivery Plan 2019 - 21.
Under The Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017, the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body is required to report on its Gender Pay Gap before the end of March each year (using data at the snapshot date of 31 March the previous year).
