Australia: Workplace Gender Equality Reporting
By Carole Black-Oracle on Mar 28, 2014
From the 2013-14 reporting period, the requirements of the 'Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012' (Act) will be fully operational. Employers will be required to complete and submit online:
- A workplace profile showing the composition of their workforce by gender; employment status; standardized occupational categories for managers and non–managers; for managers, their reporting level to the CEO; and remuneration data for managers and non-managers
- The reporting questionnaire covering standardized reporting matters under the six gender equality indicator
The reporting period is the 12 month period from 1 April to 31 March annually and reports are due between 1 April and 31 May.
Who needs to report?
All non-public sector employers with 100 or more employees (relevant employers) are required to report to the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) annually.
If a relevant employer’s number of employees falls below 100, it must continue to report until its number of employees’ falls below 80.
For more information on reporting requirements and how to submit online please refer to the following website;
