Companies still to report as gender pay gap reporting deadline looms

Companies still to report as gender pay gap reporting deadline looms

Jeanette Wheeler, partner and employment lawyer at Birketts, says employers will need a "period of introspection" to assess the reasons for their gender pay gaps - while the necessity for them to report annually will help keep the pressure on. We've drilled down into the figures provided Amazon, Apple, Google and Facebook to find out how they really stack up.

THE Independent has refused to publish details of the news site's gender pay gap figures ahead of tonight's midnight deadline.

However, many employers have revealed the difference in their companies is greater than this.

While the new data is limited to workers in the United Kingdom, it is likely that the situation is similar in other developed economies.

Dame Margaret commented on the day public bodies, charities and businesses across the borough had to report differences in men and women's pay by law for the first time.

Commenting on bonus pay gaps, Sam said, "In many cases bonus pay gaps - some which are more than double the gender pay gap - simply can not be justified".

On average, women with seven to 10 years of experience, for example, ask for about 90 cents on the dollar and are offered slightly more - 93 cents for every dollar a man is offered. The hourly median gap was 24%, with men being paid more.

Of those, 80 per cent of employers reported a mean gender pay gap in favour of men.

"The gender pay gap exposes the fact that there are fewer women in high-paying jobs or technical roles, rather than a pay gap for like-for-like roles. We have programmes that we're continually working to further improve, to actively recruit and help advance more women into senior and technology-focused roles as we grow our business here in the United Kingdom".

"Our analysis shows that, in the United Kingdom, men and women are paid broadly comparable rates to market", the bank said in a statement. Its mean pay gap, meanwhile, is five per cent in men's favour. "Most importantly, because equality for women is a right, and our whole society is the poorer as long as it remains unrealised".

Insomniac Games - Spider-Man is "never" coming to Xbox One
The game's post-launch DLC will come in the form of a three-part campaign called Marvel's Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps . So it doesn't sound like it will be story-driven DLC that completes the story so much as "more adventures starring Spider-Man".

Bonus pay is given to 32% of male employees and 29% of female employees.

The iPhone maker said the gender pay gap was due to more men in senior positions than women which led to higher pay, bonuses and stock.

EasyJet CEO Johan Lundgren even took a pay cut this year to promote gender equality. But as more and more results have been published we have seen that it is revealing some challenging truths about where the real issues lie in achieving sustainable change.

The company employs more than 6,000 workers in the UK and operates in three segments - Apple (UK) Ltd, Apple Europe Ltd and Apple Retail UK Ltd.

Looking at female representation in the top quartile of earners, network carriers fare better than low-priced and leisure counterparts - although they are still a long way from parity.

The company's United Kingdom chief Ronan Harris said in a statement: "We're not proud of these numbers".

The publisher has also said it will ensure a diversity in candidates for all Senior Leadership Team roles. But women actually miss out on pay as they gain experience, according to new data from tech job platform Hired. Bonus payments to men and women are also compared.

No official measures for companies that register a high pay gap have been announced.

Chief executive Richard Moross said: "At Moo we're trying to build a company that reflects the world around us".

"We have made some progress, but we have significant work to do, and we, as leaders of our firm, are committed to doing this critical work", CEO Lloyd Blankfein and President David Solomon said in March.
