1.1 Do I need to report?

The Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012 requires non-public sector employers with 100 or more employees (‘relevant employers’) to submit a report to the Workplace Gender Equality Agency. This includes: 

  • non-public sector employers with 100 or more employees
  • corporate structures that employ 100 or more people across all entities

If you are a relevant employer but your employee total drops below 100, you must keep reporting until the total falls below 80:

  • for any six non-consecutive months in a given reporting period
  • across the entire group if you are part of a corporate structure.

You do not have to report if you are not a relevant employer.

‘If you meet the criteria and are required to report please read our instructions to register with WGEA.
