Gender Pay StatementOur commitment to equality in the workplace
Findings April 2022
As a UK employer with over 250 employees, we are required under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 to carry out Gender Pay Reporting.
The latest Gender Pay Statement has been completed within one calendar year of 5th April 2022.
The requirements involve calculations that show the difference between the average earnings of men and women in our organisation, and publishing these on our website (below) and a government website.
Amaze Umbrella Limited is compliant umbrella company. As an employer to UK contractors, freelancers and agency workers Amaze must include all of our employees to support Gender Pay Reporting requirements. Contractors, freelancers and agency workers work through multiple assignments with recruitment agencies, and an umbrella company offers these workers a single employer than having multiple employers each year. The employment under an umbrella company sees the individual paid a salary based on the national living wage, holiday pay and the balance as commission. As a result, the figures we have provided above may not support the government’s aim with this legislation. It is also a worthy point to note that an umbrella company does not negotiate, nor is it otherwise involved in the determination of the worker’s rate of pay. All contractors, freelancers and agency workers have negotiated the rate of pay with a recruitment agency directly before sourcing employment with an umbrella. They are at liberty to decide whether or not to engage. As such pay rates vary widely by sector, skill set and experience.
