Transport for London (TfL) follows the ACAS guidance on pay gap methodology and therefore does not include consultants within its gender and ethnicity pay gap calculations.  These reports detail the pay gaps for employees directly employed by TfL or one of its subsidiary companies on permanent or fixed term contracts. These calculations also include Board and Committee members who receive an hourly or annual fee for their work at TfL.
