The Council is committed to paying employees based on the recognised job evaluation schemes detailed in the Pay Policy Statement. It is the application of these schemes that creates the salary differentials.

Pay rates for each grade are published on the Councils website with the ratio between the highest possible salary and lowest possible salary detailed below. The definition of ‘lowest paid employees’ adopted by the Authority are employees paid at the ‘lowest gross standard (single time) hourly rate’. This has been adopted as the definition to account for reduced hours and overtime rates.

Fylde Council compares favourably against the national average of top to bottom pay ratios found in the Private Sector 262:1, Public Sector 20:1 and the Voluntary Sector 10:1.
