Data on this page shows the gender and ethnicity pay gap reporting and (from 2021) disability pay gap reporting for staff employed by the London Fire Brigade. The London Fire Commissioner (LFC) is the fire and rescue authority for London, and runs the London Fire Brigade (LFB). 

As a functional body reporting to the Mayor of London, LFB has a commitment to undertake work to narrow any gaps. LFB agree with the Mayor of London that this is necessary in order to address any inequalities and reduce gaps where these are evident.

The Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017 requires that the London Fire Brigade publish the difference between the rate of pay of male and female full-pay employees to show any gender pay gap. Annual data is available from March 2016.

And, although it is not a statutory requirement, the LFB also publish ethnicity and disability (from 2021) pay gap data in line with good practice. Annual data for ethnicity is available annually from March 2017.

With effect from 1 April 2018, the individual holding the office of London Fire Commissioner (LFC) is appointed by the Mayor of London and is not an LFB employee. However, in the interests of transparency, the London Fire Commissioner has been taken into account for the purposes of reporting this pay gap data.
