The gender pay gap in Ireland - the differential between the average pay of males and females within an organisation – is estimated at an average of 14%.

Our CIPD HR Practices in Ireland surveys tell us that our members support legislation for annual reporting of the gender pay gap, including bonuses and shares. For the last three years, the CIPD HR Practices in Ireland surveys found that only 32% of employers were calculating their gender pay gap. The implementation of this legislation and associated regulations from 31 May 2022 now requires employers to report their GPG each year, and the measures that are being taken to eliminate or reduce the gap.
