SCE Solicitors were at the AFSA Spring Conference and Awards Dinner in May and held a very vibrant workshop discussing gender pay gap with significant delegate participation.
One aspect of the discussion was that those who attended were surprised at some of the pay gaps reported by fire services ie it was very small – the feeling was that most of the retained fire fighters tend to be women whose hourly rate is a lot higher and this skews the overall figures.
The workshop was well received and SCE Solicitors have been invited to offer a fire service informal advice on their pay gap report.
We again felt fortunate to be included in this positive event and supporting the Asain Fire Service Association.
