United Kingdom vows to tackle gender pay gap

Of firms now known to have the most acute gender pay gaps, Ryanair is the best known.

Some women declined to be interviewed for this article because they are hoping to renegotiate their pay - exactly the result advocates were hoping for.

News show Outside Source, which is simulcast on the BBC news channel and BBC World News, has already achieved a 50:50 gender split after adopting a system of self-monitoring in January 2017. It is much more common than people realise. For the median figure - halfway between the highest and lowest - the pay gap is 21%.

Talk to your co-workers about pay - find out what they earn and share information in your team. As one put it: "This isn't to excuse it, but there aren't enough women in the system".

Minister for women and equalities at the time Justine Greening said: "Helping women to reach their full potential isn't only the right thing to do, it makes good economic sense and is good for British business".

How does gender pay gap reporting work?

Highfield and the board are now addressing the gender imbalances the report has highlighted by setting up a Gender Pay Review Group to tackle the pay discrepancies. According to BT's main public company listing, women are paid 2.3% more in terms of median hourly rate. "Finally women are realizing that they have a right to talk about pay and they can not be silenced". Arsenal said its mean pay gap drops from 80% to 17% when players were removed from the calculation. If so you are legally obliged to resolve these immediately.

He called it a "total surrender to the false campaign in the media" and said the credibility of the government was at stake. But Naftali Bennett, head of the Jewish Home party that is part of Mr Netanyahu's governing coalition, condemned the plan.

"But we need to get more women rocking that boat".

Ms Champion added: "Increasing female participation in the workplace and reducing the gender pay gap is not only morally right, it's economically right".

The Foxes have been ordered to publish the difference in the salaries of men and women by the government, like all organisations employing more than 250 people. In some case this is shockingly high. Bonus payments to men and women are also compared. "This practice has to end".

The paper was passed overwhelmingly and the deadline for employers to submit their figures was yesterday (3). That's a marked improvement over previous year but the gulf is still substantial.

An Amazon spokesperson said: "Our gender pay gap analysis shows a -0.7% difference in favour of women, compared to the United Kingdom average of 18.4% in favour of men". But they still have a wide gender pay gap because of the salaries of a few top male executives. While it is possible that some of these may be legitimate, some may be incorrect reporting.

Apple also boasts a median pay gap in women's favour - by a margin of two per cent.

"The new data being provided by employers could help contribute to that". Any company which does not publish by the deadline is acting against the law.
