The Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) is an Australian Government statutory agency that promotes and improves workplace gender equality and administers the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012 (Act).
The Act requires non-public sector employers with 100 or more employees to submit a report to the Agency. This covers standalone organisations or corporate structures with 100 or more employees across all entities.
If so, the report is mandatory and by submitting the report, outside of meeting your obligations, it allows an organisation to shine a light on gender equality issues in the workplace and allows an organisation to positively develop a strategy to overcome any of the identified issues.
The reporting period commenced on the 14th of April 2021, ending on the 14th of June 2021. The report covers the previous 12-month reporting period, from April (the previous year) to March (the current year).
