Pay equity in Western Australia
Improving pay equity focuses on reducing the difference in the average earnings of men and women
Western Australia has a gender pay gap of 26 percent – meaning that on average for every dollar earned by full time male employees, full time female employees earn 74 cents.
This website explains what why this gender pay gap exists, and how organisations can implement strategies to improve pay equity at the workplace level.
The Pay Equity Unit at the Department of Commerce works with public and private sector organisations to promote and implement pay equity strategies. Contact us via Pay.Equity@commerce.wa.gov.au or 9222 7700.
