The Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017 requires that the London Fire Brigade publish the difference between the rate of pay of male and female full-pay employees to show any gender pay gap. Annual data is available from March 2016. And, although it is not a statutory requirement, the LFB also publish ethnicity pay gap data in line with good practice. Annual data is available annually from March 2017.
We agree with the Mayor of London that this is necessary in order to address any inequalities and reduce gaps where these are evident.
As of 31 March 2019 men and women at London Fire Brigade working full-time are paid, on average (median), the following:
A gender pay gap of minus 2.84 per cent.
As of 31 March 2019 the figures show that there is 0% pay gap for full-time staff in the London Fire Brigade, who make up 98% of the workforce
You can find the pay gap data we have published on the London Datastore.
