Gender pay gap highest in cricket and tennis

Credit card frozen in ice

A change in United Kingdom law means that companies in the market with more than 250 employees must reveal their gender pay gap stats by tomorrow (April 5).

What happens when the deadline has passed?

As with Google, Facebook's topline data appears to be fairly representative of how the company actually pays its UK-based staff.

Employers that do not disclose their figures risk legal action from the UK's Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). Perhaps a large gender pay gap could tip the balance? "The former is rightly protected by law, the latter is a variety of calculations that are more or less meaningful depending on the extent to which they compare like-for-like circumstances".

Today's report from the Isle of Wight Council has found that the mean (average) hourly pay for females is £12.60 per hour, while males are paid £13.39, that's a gap of nearly 10%.

"The strike paved the way for the equal pay act which has been in place for nearly the same amount of time".

"Many organizations consider the gender pay gap to be acceptable if men and women do different jobs or that men hold more senior positions than women ... this is worrying", Hazel Conley, a professor at the University of the West of England, told CNN earlier this week.

The charity also claims that this exercise has the potential to be a game changer in prompting people to talk about pay and find out what their colleagues earn -and it is calling on women everywhere today to do just that.

The funding appeal came a day after several children were among those killed in a strike on the rebel-held port of Hodeida. Jan Egeland, secretary general of the Norwegian Refugee Council, called for a ceasefire and end to the war.

The region's businesses with the highest gender pay gaps followed national trends, with finance and particular retail sectors performing badly.

"This is the first year of reporting and we will use the results to target our efforts effectively as we continue to work with employers towards eliminating the gender pay gap".

Women in the United Kingdom can expect to be paid around 81 pence for every £1 a man makes.

Are your female employees mostly in lower-paid roles?

"The most important thing to come out of this is the conversation that this will provoke", Bazely said.

Each airline issued statements alongside their gender pay reports saying male and female pilots are paid the same. Just over 39 per cent of its lowest paid workers are women while 29 per cent of top quartile are, and women's median bonus pay is 41.5 per cent lower than men's. "Action plans to tackle the reasons behind them are key". It voluntarily published its global pay gap data, with a median gap of 20.8%. In the upper pay quartile, the proportion of employees is 63.3% men and 36.7% women. "And the idea that high-paid roles have to be those that are done all hours of the day and can't be done by women working flexibly or part time is discriminatory".

Councillor Elayne Merry, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for People and Performance at Lewes District Council, said, "In the year that we mark 100 years since the Representation of the People Act, we welcome this news, but we are not complacent". Here is everything you need to know.
