SUPPORTING STATEMENT

LAW Absolute Limited is a specialist legal recruiter, supplying a diverse range of candidates to a broad spectrum of client organisations.

The majority of the data underlying our Gender Pay Reporting relates to workers we supply to clients and the hiring and remuneration decisions in respect of those individuals lies with our clients.

The workers we supply to clients are typically paid an hourly or daily rate of pay and only a very small number receive any form of bonus, which tends to be of relatively low value. By contrast 40.0% of our male staff and 42.3% of our female staff receive commission and bonuses and by their nature these tend to be of higher value. This has skewed both the headline mean and median bonus gender pay gap figures above.

Looking at our own staff in isolation the mean bonus gender pay gap figure becomes 10.1% and the median bonus gender pay gap 28.2%.   

The company remains satisfied that any gender pay gaps within our own staff are a function of the mix between different roles and, within fee earning roles, are a reflection of individual performance and the resultant impact on commission earnings.

This statement confirms that the published information is accurate as at the time of publishing.
