  • #Paymetoo places pressure on firms to close gender pay gaps

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 trust, which runs Leighton Hospital as well as Victoria Infirmary in Northwich and Elmhurst in Winsford, has revealed its female employees earn 25.9% less than men on average.

Turner, the parent company of CNN, said in a filing Tuesday that its mean gender pay gap in the United Kingdom was 21%, while its median gap was 27%.

"Ultimately, while I believe the intention was good and agree that pay transparency is important, the proposed policy would not yield the intended results", she said in the statement. "Most importantly, because equality for women is a right, and our whole society is the poorer as long as it remains unrealised".

Some companies with large gaps have said they pay women and men in similar jobs the same amount.

There are certainly more than a few similarities between the situation at Arsenal right now and the Manchester United last season. Our concern is the performance and the crowd will be behind us.

Introducing mandatory gender pay gap reporting for large employers past year, which led to Wednesday's deadline, is just one way in which the government is seeking to improve transparency and address the issue, she said.

She went on to urge women who work for employers that don't have to report gender pay to ask bosses about their approach to fair pay.

The median gap compares the pay of individual male and female employees at the middle of the scales, which helps exclude outliers who are very highly paid.

Women make up 45% of the 359 employees. "This should give a clear insight into how committed the organisation is towards promoting women", says The Guardian.

In terms of bonus gaps, several NHS trusts have some of the highest figures with Hull And East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust General Purposes Charity revealing a figure of 99.4%.

French strike affects Swiss rail connections

Ms Champion added: "Increasing female participation in the workplace and reducing the gender pay gap is not only morally right, it's economically right".

Breheny Group, a civil engineering contractor founded by a woman, said its 47.3% median pay gap was "not significantly different" to the majority of its peers, but said the data "shows we need to do more to create opportunities for women to progress".

It's been an uncomfortable exercise for many companies, but advocates welcome the mandatory disclosures. But they still have a wide gender pay gap because of the salaries of a few top male executives. The firm employs more men than women across the board. According to this metric, men are paid just 6.1 per cent better than women.

Gender pay gaps have little to do with unequal pay, but quite a lot to do with unequal representation.

Niki Kandirikiria, director of programmes at Equality Now, hopes that companies with large pay gaps will take it on themselves to analyse what is causing the discrepancy and what they can do to adjust it.
