The Code sets out the minimum information that all Local Authorities must publish, the frequency it should be published and how it should be published. The full document can be accessed via the Gov.uk website

Gender and Ethnicity Pay Audits
The Mayor made a commitment that each of the GLA's functional bodies will publish gender and ethnicity pay audits and in 2020 that was extended to include disability pay audits. The reports below are the Legacy Corporation's response to that pledge and form an important part of our commitment to monitor the impact of our policies, the makeup of our workforce and work to reducing the pay gaps that exist at LLDC.
London Legacy Development Corporation's (Legacy Corporation) Gender, Ethnicity and Disability Pay Audits can be found below. To tackle the gender, ethnicity and disability pay gaps the Legacy Corporation has adopted an integrated Inclusion & Diversity Action Plan which sets out the detailed actions being taken to reduce and eliminate the pay gaps.
The action plan can be read here.
