Following the introduction of mandatory gender pay gap reporting in 2017, the Law Society has produced guidance for the profession to capture the best practice that will help us set the right standards for the legal sector and build a clearer picture and way forward.

The guidance includes recommendations on how to incorporate partner remuneration into the data in a meaningful and comparable way.

This guidance is designed to provide recommendations to our members on how to fulfil their gender pay gap reporting requirements. However, it will be for individual firms to determine how to implement these recommendations.

The regulations only require firms with at least 250 employees to report their gender pay gap data. However, the Law Society encourages firms with fewer than 250 employees to report voluntarily where it is practicable to do so.
