GALLERY: Corby, Kettering, Wellingborough and Rushden firms' gender pay gap revealed

Gender pay gap

Meanwhile, high street brands KFC, Matalan, Starbucks, Costa, McDonald's and Primark reported no difference in what they paid their female and male staff.

Some of the lowest gender pay gaps in the sector include Metro Bank, with a pay gap of 22.4 per cent Bank of Ireland, with a pay gap of 24.6 per cent, and Skipton Building Society with a pay gap of 29.2 per cent.

A total of 25 councils have no gap, while Adur District Council in West Sussex posted a gender pay gap of 50.3 per cent in favour of women.

Most of the measures we look at when we're considering what men and women get paid jump back and look at the bigger picture: instead of checking identical jobs, where possible, we look at what men and women actually earn and the difference between those figures.

There is certainly far more going on with the gender pay gap than men and women simply being paid differently for the same work. United Kingdom -run banks like HSBC and Barclays reported women earned a mean hourly rate of 59% and 48%, respectively, less than their male counterparts.

Perhaps unexpectedly, education - a sector predominantly filled with university-educated women - has also fared badly due to sizable gaps across multi-academy trusts.

The publication of a gender pay audit for big United Kingdom employers reveals a median difference of pay between men and women of just under 10% (9,7%), the BBC reported on Thursday.

What are the consequences of not publishing your findings?

Even with legislation in place for nearly a year, companies were slow to publish their data with more than 1,000 firms reporting in the last 24 hours.

That will be hard to say. "So the idea of putting men and women together is actually a very positive dynamic". But the disclosures by United Kingdom companies don't provide employee-to-employee comparisons.

The data was published in accordance with new United Kingdom legislation that requires employers with more than 250 employees to make public their gender pay gap as of April 5, 2017.

The effort in Britain is one of a growing number of initiatives among countries to promote equal pay.

Nadkarni has also observed the trend in her own research.

But the process for enforcing the rules on gender pay gap reporting is slow - and could allow companies to miss today's deadline by months with little or no comeback.

Consider what happened at the British Broadcasting Corporation. Thirty one per cent of the most highly paid employees in the chain are women.

She said: "Part of the problem is that there has been no transparency around pay up to this point". The report caused an outcry that has led to parliamentary hearings.

That remains to be seen.

The Victoria and Albert Museum pays women 7.2% less, while the Royal Academy of Arts has a pay gap of just 1%.

It seems almost every large employer in America has lately been targeted with a pay discrimination suit. Tesco says it hasn't received the claims and says it works hard to ensure employees are paid fairly.

In other cases, a change in the pay culture has been pushed from the outside. Announcing the new disclosure rules in 2015, Cameron said they would "cast sunlight on the discrepancies and create the pressure we need for change, driving women's wages up".

Women are five times more likely than men to take breaks from working to have children, according to the report, and they're penalized financially as a result.

"If we are serious about tackling the gender pay gap, then we have to do more than publish data", Stella Creasy, a member of Parliament from the opposition Labour Party, said in an interview with the Guardian. Meanwhile, the USA has moved away from requiring more uniform or transparent disclosures.
