NHS England sets out plans to close 21% gender pay gap

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

The deadline for the private sector employers is April 4, Wednesday midnight.

"Helping to make the most of women's talent is in their own commercial interest, and it is in our national interest too", she said.

For the first time, she said, every larger firm would know the average pay difference between men and women in their company.

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".

What do the companies have to reveal?

According to The World Economic Forum, the overall gender pay gap in the United Kingdom and United Sates is similar. The total sum is divided by the number of males and females in the organization.

Including footballers, men at the club were paid 93 per cent more in bonuses than women while excluding footballers, men were paid 45 per cent more in bonuses. "Only then will organisations build inclusive cultures where both women and men can thrive".

Companies who haven't yet revealed the data were sent a final warning and not doing so till the deadline would be considered as breaking the law.

In a piece in the Telegraph, Prime Minister May emphasised the importance of tackling gender parity with regards to wages.

Only companies with 250 employees or more are required to submit this data, which means that smaller studios like Ninja Theory, Rocksteady and Playground Games are exempt. The firm employs more men than women across the board. In finance, women are paid 40 per cent less than men because of these career gaps they have to take.

Which are the offending companies?

The organisation has reported its gender pay gap data across three United Kingdom legal entities in line with the government's gender pay gap reporting regulations and in time for the private sector submission deadline of 4 April 2018 (today).

Male executives take the majority of the highest-paid jobs at all three major companies, and are paid by far the bigger bonuses.

Has the pay gap reporting process uncovered any discriminatory practices in relation to pay, which could be a legal equal pay issue?

Want to learn more about the gender gap? These included several high street brands such as Matalan, Starbucks, KFC, Primark, Costa, and McDonald's.

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

The annual salary paid to EasyJet CEO Johan Lundgren was cut by £34,000 ($48,000) to £706,000 ($994,000) in January.

One hundred percent of Apple employees, regardless of their level in the company, receive stock bonus incentives.

Groundscare equipment manufacturer Ransomes Jacobsen in Ipswich had a median gap of -7%, meaning women's average pay was higher than men's. Across the firm's 310 United Kingdom employees, 37 percent are women.
