Sports Direct unveils 6.3% gender pay gap

#Paymetoo places pressure on firms to close gender pay gaps

All UK companies with 250 or more employees are required to file their data by midnight tonight, with more than 9,100 having now submitted data up to date as of 5 April a year ago. "While we have similar numbers of men and women working at every level of the organisation our ambition of full equality remains undimmed".

The Welsh Government's gender pay gap is just over 8%.

He added: "It is fantastic to see the government enforcing the release of this data, but is it asking the right question?"

Pilots are well paid, and they're nearly all men.

What do you think needs to be done to solve the gender pay gap problem? It is much more common than people realise.

Medical equipment manufacturer Bespak Europe had a median pay gap of 30.1%. As one put it: "This isn't to excuse it, but there aren't enough women in the system. The increased transparency that gender pay reporting has brought has further fuelled the debate about how we're supporting different groups in society towards fulfilling, fair, and rewarding opportunities and work for all".

Want to find out the gender pay gap at your company? An equal proportion of men and women - 74% - received bonus pay. Men tend to dominate in management (71%), where bonuses are higher, while women are more numerous in the lower ranks of the company (32%), where bonuses are smaller. Why is those women's work not better paid, and why are they not being promoted?

How big is the pay gap at.?

Are you advertising jobs as flexible working or offering skilled part-time roles that work for people with caring responsibilities, which are more likely to be women?

When even the Left mock the 'gender pay gap', it's time for the FT and Maria Miller to see sense

In the future we'd like to see the gender pay gap reduce to zero, but compared to the rest of the United Kingdom, it is at least comforting to know that companies such as Sumo Digital and Warner Bros. with such garish disparities represent outliers.

This is the message on deadline day for the gender pay gap reporting regulations, with more than 10 of the region's largest employers yet publish their gender pay and bonus gap figures. In some case this is shockingly high. The club said it pays men and women the same salaries for the same jobs. "This practice has to end".

It is estimated that around 9,000 employers will have to submit such information.

4,960 employers said that they paid a bonus previous year.

The median gap in pay per hour is 18 per cent but some companies, including Ryanair and Phase Eight, the retailer, revealed figures of more than 50 per cent. Unilever and Evans Cycles were among the few companies to favour women, while 25 per cent of local councils have no gap at all.

The Sun's parent company News UK revealed it had an overall pay gap of 15.2 per cent across all its subsidiaries last week. The search giant's female employees' mean hourly rate is 17 per cent lower than men's, and their median rate is 16 per cent lower.

St Ives subsidiary Clays published its own pay gap data, with a 36.7% median gap and 24% mean. In the public sector it has stayed flat at just above 14 per cent. Progress on closing the pay gap has stalled and not shifted in three years. In every other division, men are paid significantly more.

What if employers don't publish their data?
