The gender pay gap is widest in these industries

UK Gender Pay Gap: Here's All You Need To Know About The Calculation, Offending Companies from UK UK companies approach deadline to register gender pay gap

Just 8% said they had no gender pay gap at all, based on the median measure.

The pay disparity between women and men is often framed as a difference in experience.

Employers that do not disclose their figures risk legal action from the UK's Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC).

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.

Earlier, MBW revealed that the average gender pay gap across all three major labels in the United Kingdom is 33.8% - with 29.8% at Universal, 22.7% at Sony and 49% at Warner.

MP SARAH Champion offered to help businesses in Rotherham draw up plans to close their gender pay gap. That means that if, say, a woman doesn't receive the same promotions and raises as her male counterparts, she will ask for less than men in each subsequent position, compounding the salary disparity over time.

Are your female employees mostly in lower-paid roles?

For median hourly rates, the budget airline pays women just 28p for every £1 earned by men.

"But for all the welcome progress in the decades since, major injustices still hold too many women back".

News show Outside Source, which is simulcast on the BBC news channel and BBC World News, has already achieved a 50:50 gender split after adopting a system of self-monitoring in January 2017.

How is the pay gap calculated? In every other division, men are paid significantly more. Meanwhile, in its corporate offices, women's mean hourly rate is 26 per cent lower than men's.

All UK public and private sector organisations with more than 249 employees have to reveal the difference between hourly pay for men and women.

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

Anduntil a year ago, equal pay advocates expected the USA would require companies to do the same. Electronic Arts reports a pay gap of 13.7%, similar to Namco UK's 14.5%.

As far as we can establish, the company with the largest pay gap in Wales is CH4 Gas Utility and Maintenance Services in Cardiff at 40.7% followed by Bridgend College at 36.8%.

What is the gender pay gap?

"What we also really want to see is some wealth redistributed down from executives' pay". Typically the median is the more representative figure, because the mean can be skewed by a handful of highly paid employees.

In some cases, employers have attributed the uneven representation of men and women in their workforces to particular industries and roles being more attractive to a particular gender - but in others, unequal opportunity may be at the heart.
