According to the Office for National Statistics the gender pay gap dropped to 17.9% for all employees in 2018.
A report published by the Resolution Foundation found that the differences in pay between women in the UK of different ethnicities is still significant.
Gender is not binary. This space is where there should be charts showing the gender pay gap between cis, trans, gender non-binary people.
Currently, the decisions are left up to the employer to report the gender identity of their employees. This leads to an inaccurate and incomplete picture of the gender pay gap. Research has shown that employees' pay can drop significantly when they transition, and the details the employer may have might not reflect the employee's identity. In addition, the official gender gap reporting guidelines advises that employers 'omit non-binary employees from their calculation' – which has serious implications for the data we have on the gender pay gap.
