UK's gender pay gap deadline looms; Ryanair one of the worst offenders

Kate Andrews April 3 2018 12:01am The Times Gender pay gap figures are no help to working women Kate Andrews

The news has come to light due to a change in United Kingdom law which stipulates that any company in the market with more than 250 employees must reveal their gender pay gap stats by April 5 (tomorrow).

At 11.59pm on Wednesday the deadline passes for United Kingdom companies to report their gender pay gap details to the government.

Google's topline data appears to be a more accurate reflection of pay across the company's United Kingdom offices than in Apple or Amazon's case.

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.

Apple has three companies in the United Kingdom, and reported numbers for all of them. Just 8% said they had no gender pay gap at all, based on the median measure. There will be women all over the country who are quite simply being cheated out of what they are entitled to or men who are being over-rewarded. At Blackstone, the average incentive compensation for women is 75.4 percent lower than men's, with the median pay gap stands at 84.9 percent.

Equal pay, the idea that people who do the same job should be paid the same amount, has been legally enforced in the United Kingdom since 1970. "Only then will organisations build inclusive cultures where both women and men can thrive".

She landed a role as a briefcase girl on the game show Deal or No Deal in 2006, reportedly getting paid $800 an episode. The book, due for release on April 12, also details the soon-to-be royal's interest with Princess Diana .

That compares with a national median gender hourly pay gap for full-time employees of 9.1 percent in 2017, according to Britain's Office for National Statistics.

"But even better than that, finally women are realising that they have a right to talk about pay and they can not be silenced".

Jack Sealy, which supplies air and power tools, also had a negative gap - its mean average showed women were paid 2% more, though its median favoured men by 3.9%.

Under the rules, companies have to disclose the percentage of women in different pay bands and the general trend is clear: most companies have higher proportion of men in top paid roles, while women tend to dominate the lowest tier.

Cricket and tennis are the sports with the largest disparities between men's and women's pay, figures released by the Government have revealed.

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

NY baseball games postponed amid snowy spring storm
The Mets later announced their home game against the Philadelphia Phillies , which was slate to begin at 7:10 p.m. Many schools were already closed for spring break, but some districts had to delay or cancel classes.

The title has published 18 stories about the gender pay gap since March 19.

The publisher, whose titles include The Morning Advertiser, The Grocer and brands covering the retail, hospitality and pharmacy industries, said it is already making "good progress" to narrow the pay gap.

The Welsh Government's gender pay gap is just over 8%. The difference, known as the gender pay gap, is created by an imbalance in representation - specifically, a higher proportion of men in senior roles.

As a result of this process, we now have some meaningful actions which we intend to implement to ensure we have a business that better represents society. There are also more men in leadership positions, which pay more.

"We undervalue the roles that women do deliver on.so that puts them on the back foot in the first place".

Highfield added: 'Over the coming months, the Gender Pay Review Group will analyse the issues fully and identify the changes this company needs to make to address them.
