Gender equality reporting

Last updated July 2024

This chapter explains your gender equality reporting obligations and takes you step by step through how to submit a gender equality report.

Are you required to submit gender equality reports?

You are required to submit gender equality reports if you are an Australian private sector or Commonwealth public sector employer with 100 or more employees.

Tip: When counting your employees to determine if you have 100 or more, you must include those employed in Australia by a company that is a subsidiary of your company. A company will be a subsidiary if your company:
- controls the composition of that company’s board;
- controls more than 50% of the votes that might be cast at the other company’s general meeting; or
- holds more than 50% of the shares of the other company.
Remember: Once you become a ‘reporting business’, you must continue to report unless and until the number of your employees falls below 80.
