Executive Summary
6
7
This report is based on amalgamated data from the charity and company payrolls; as each has fewer than 250 employees this data is not legally required.
8
The gender pay gap refers to the difference in average pay between men and woman, worked out using average hourly earnings figures for employees.
9
Results are shown as a percentage, with positive results showing that men are paid higher on average, negative results that women are paid higher on average
10
The Union's Median Gender Pay Gap has fallen from 2.2% in 2017 to -1.1% in 2018. Both of these results are extremely positive as they are near zero (no gap)
11
12
Six calculations are required by the government for qualifying organisations. For the Union the results of these are as follows:

Data has been taken from the Sage payroll reports for the University of Sussex Students Union, and was verified by the Union's Finance Department
33
For the purposes of this report, gender was established using Right To Work docmentation, and ignored separate issues around gender self-identification
34
Employees who received no pay during the relevant pay period were excluded from the gender pay gap calculations based on government guidelines.
35
The employee count for this snapshot date drastically reduced from last year, due to the timing of Easter and the Easter Holidays
36
Relatively few employees receive a bonus payment, therefore a few people make a big difference (gap has swung from +14 in 2017 to -15 in 2018)
37
This data was collated and has been presented in this report by the Head of Central Services

The guidance says "Where periods are calculated as a year, a year is treated as having 365.25 days"
46
365.25 / 7 = 52.18 weeks/year, therefore weekly pay is based on annual pay divided by 52.18
47
