United Kingdom vows to tackle gender pay gap

Deadline day: Latecomers to gender pay gap in reporting scramble to meet today's deadline

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

Writing in The Telegraph newspaper on Wednesday, Mrs May said that equality in pay is a fundamental right, similar to having the vote. It is much more common than people realise.

"Firms have had plenty of warning and have no excuse for failing to submit their gender pay gap data accurately and on time".

Pilots are well paid, and they're nearly all men.

Take it to your Women's Network if you have one.

And today must signal the start of the journey towards gender parity at the top of East Anglia's biggest businesses.

New research shows that 23 million* people would consider ditching their bank if it has a high gender pay gap.

. The majority of these staff are likely to be lower paid men; in the division that pays warehouse staff, men outnumber women 7:3 in all quartiles.

After revealing the figures, companies are working up off late to solve the issue and concentrate on equal pay.

Do your recruitment processes need reviewing? Companies should also provide an explanation of why their gender pay gap exists and what they plan to do to close it.

All Apple employees are eligible to receive bonuses, however because the gender pay gap reporting requirements only considers vested stock in the year to 5 April 2017, new employees hired in this period were not represented in the final data. In some case this is shockingly high.

However Stanford Health Care Hospital said it has received four to five patients following the shooting, according to Sky News. "Thank you to our phenomenal Law Enforcement Officers and First Responders that are now on the scene", Mr Trump tweeted .

"Making full use of women's academic achievements, experience and talents would help boost United Kingdom productivity, to the benefit of our whole economy". "This practice has to end".

The rule was brought in past year with the deadline for businesses and charities to publish their details being midnight tonight.

According to the report by Apple, men earned five per cent more on average than women at its United Kingdom operations, although the median pay gap was two per cent in favour of women.

Nearly all of the East Anglian companies required to report revealed a pay gap favouring men, with construction group Breheny, audio visual firm Midwich and insurance giant Aviva revealing some of the biggest gaps. While it is possible that some of these may be legitimate, some may be incorrect reporting.

It is lower among private employers than in the public sector, where it rises to more than 17 per cent.

The company has also given itself a self imposed five-year deadline to achieve a 50/50 gender balance in the Senior Leadership Team.

What if employers don't publish their data?

The Government Equalities Office expected data from around 9000 organisations. Any company which does not publish by the deadline is acting against the law.

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

"This legislation is in place to bring about better gender equality in the workplace and any employer not complying needs to ask themselves tough questions, re-think their priorities, be prepared for serious reputational damage, and be ready to face a very unhappy workforce". This is a disproportionately drawn out process.
