Gender pay gap on PM's list of 'burning injustices'

Credit card frozen in ice

The Football Association (FA) has an average gender pay gap of 23.2%.

Apple pays female employees up to 26% less than men in some parts of its United Kingdom and European operations, according to the company's gender pay gap report. These are the findings of independent research carried out for SavvvWoman.co.uk, a leading finance website aimed at women.

The deadline has passed for companies to report their gender pay gaps, and the results are in.

All businesses with more than 250 employees in the United Kingdom have been required to supply figures to the government by the close of 4 April as part of new regulations created to address unequal pay.

Companies who do not provide their figures could face legal action including court orders and fines. The firm employs more men than women across the board. Women account for 34% of top earners at BA and 24% at Virgin Atlantic.

57 per cent of 18 to 34 year olds who use a credit card are likely switch their credit card provider, compared to 37 per cent of adults aged 55 or over.

As the gender pay gap data revelations are all coming to a head today, companies and policymakers alike have been trying to track when gap widens between genders - but as a recent study has shown, that gap appears disappointingly early.

Hyland has a number of suggestions as to how this could be achieved, ranging from long-term goals of getting more women into technical roles, to short term policies such as more clearly defining "job roles, salary bands, objective criteria for progression and bonuses".

Councillor Dean Sabri, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Core Support and Strategic Services at Eastbourne Borough Council, said, "I'm proud of where we are in consigning the pay gap to history.

Numerous causes of the gender pay gap lie outside the workplace, and will require a partnership between companies and government if we are to deliver long-term, lasting change".

Sarah continues: We know that millions of people stick with their banks and insurers when they're not happy with them.

Ryanair reported a mean pay gap of 67%, the largest in the industry.

The rest of the employers either have no median gender pay gap (8%) or one in favour of women (13%).

Many of the UK's largest print companies have revealed their gender pay cap data as the government's deadline looms. But businesses can't close the gap by themselves.

Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust - with 6,538 staff - reported an average 30.3pc gender pay gap meaning women earn 70p for every £1 men take home. Thirty percent of our employee population are women.

Are your female employees mostly in lower-paid roles? In the upper pay quartile, the proportion of employees is 63.3% men and 36.7% women.
