The Ministry of Justice did not miss the deadline or refile its gender pay gap data for 2017-18 and this data was filed on time.

The Ministry was however required to revise its Gender Pay Gap data for 2016-17 as, in reviewing the data for 2017-18 report calculation, it became apparent that the calculations for the 2016-17 Gender Pay Gap report incorrectly included Occupational Sick Pay (OSP) in addition to normal pay.

The Ministry of Justice had previously submitted its 2016-17 figures within the required deadline, however, as it is not possible to amend an existing entry once submitted, the 2016-17 figures had to be refiled and therefore showing as missing the original deadline.
