Gender pay reporting deadline closes with largest gap at 85.2 per cent

Gender pay gap

Fashion company Karen Millen reported a gender pay gap of 49 per cent, whilst High Street companies Costa, KFC, Matalan and Primark reported that they paid male and female staff the same amount.

Of the Premier League football clubs, West Bromwich Albion has the highest median gender gap, of 34.3%, with Manchester City having the highest in favour of women, paying them 17.2% more than men on average. This, they argue, means that even tough they say they pay men and women in each group equally, they come out with a huge gender pay gap.

There have also been a number of companies which had to re-file their details due to misinterpreting the methodology for calculating the pay gap.

While 78% of the 500 financial decision makers polled believed there was a gender pay gap in favour of men across the United Kingdom, only 21% considered there was one in their organisation. It did not, however, address why so many head office roles were filled by men instead of women.

HSBC has the widest pay gap in the mortgage sector, according to newly published figures.

The top group of earners at Dartford And Gravesham NHS Trust is 61.9 percent female, while in the lowest group 88.9 percent of staff are women. Women earn a total of 33.7% less than mean meaning for every £1 a male earns a female only earns 66p for the same job.

It is not the same thing as equal pay.

Thousands of United Kingdom companies have for the first time disclosed their gender pay gap: the gap between what they pay men and women who work for them, on average.

The Pay Gap Increases as Women Progress in Their Careers -The typical 20 to 29 year-old woman earns 81.8 cents on the dollar compared to her male counterparts.


The Pay Gap Also Varies across Industries - The oil and gas industry has the largest controlled pay gap at 7.4 percent, followed by transportation and warehousing at 4.9 percent.

The figures reveal a chasm between men and the women, with women earning, on average, around 14.47% less than their male colleagues across the United Kingdom game industry, according to calculations made by GI Biz.

The data released this week produced stunning results, with banks, airlines, retailers and British soccer clubs reporting significant differences in the mean salaries between men and women.

"The notion that women freely choose to work part-time and in lower paid jobs doesn't recognise the gendered constraints".

South Kesteven District Council had the highest gender pay gap among Greater Lincolnshire authorities, government figures show.

The disparity of wages that exist within most fashion businesses was further underscored by the figures produced by many brands and retailers.

Under the Equality Act 2010, companies with more than 250 staff are also required to give a gender-based report on bonus payments by a deadline of midnight yesterday.

"We are passionate about striving to ensure that our workforce, be it onstage, backstage, behind the scenes or in the pit, more fairly reflects the world around us".

In a statement published alongside the data, Condé Nast attributed its salary skew to its longstanding and male-dominated senior leadership team.
