Open data: Data transparency: Datasets (Local Government Transparency Code 2014)

Adur & Worthing Councils are committed to being open and transparent about how we work, our decision-making processes and the services provided. As part of this commitment the Councils publish the following relevant data to increase democratic accountability and to comply with the requirements of the Local Government Transparency Code 2014.

The aim of open data in the public sector is to increase transparency across Government and allow anyone, whether businesses, individuals, charities and community groups to re-use public sector information. The Government is leading the way by publishing a large amount of data from many public sector bodies, see Open data on the GOV.UK website, and also showcasing applications that have been created using the information available.

Gender Pay Gap

Gender pay reporting legislation requires employers with 250 or more employees to publish statutory calculations every year showing how large the pay gap is between their male and female employees.

The gender pay gap is calculated as the difference between the average hourly earnings of men and women, looking at whether there are more males or females in higher paid roles overall.

This is not the same as Equal Pay, which looks at whether men and women in the same or broadly similar job are being paid the same.

The gender pay gap is about the difference in pay overall between men and women across a whole organisation.

  • Adur District Council has more than 250 employees, so it is required by law to publish an annual gender pay gap report
  • As Worthing Borough Council has less than 250 employees, it is not required to publish an annual gender pay gap report
  • The majority of staff employed in the Adur & Worthing Councils Joint Services are employed by Adur District Council

The Pay Gap Report is available below:
