Occupational segregation in Scottish higher education institutions: disability, gender and race

Pauline Anderson, Angela O'Hagan, Emily Thomson

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

Previous research has shown that occupational segregation is one of the main causes of the pay gaps in the United Kingdom. Understanding the scope and causes of occupational segregation is key to tackling gender, disability and ethnicity pay gaps within your institution.

In April 2013 the specific duties for The Equality Act 2010 came into force for Scottish higher education institutions (HEIs). One of these duties requires pay reporting, which includes reporting on the gender pay gap and occupational segregation. In 2017, the duties will also require reporting on pay gap and occupational segregation for minority ethnic and disabled staff.
