The Workplace Gender Equality Agency estimates that the national gender pay gap for full-time employees fell to 14.6 per cent in 2017-18, compared with 15.3 per cent in the previous financial year. The full-time average weekly earnings of men was $1,678.40, compared with $1,433.60 for women. The agency’s director Libby Lyons says the national gender pay gap could be eliminated if all employers undertook a pay audit and took appropriate action.
