Applying decomposition methods to data from the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings, we highlight the importance of performance-related pay to the contemporary UK gender pay gap. We find that the lower probability of females being employed in performance-related pay jobs explains a sizeable proportion of the gender pay gap, particularly at the top end of the annual earnings distribution. The latter is driven by its influence within the private sector.
