Gender pay gap in Thurrock organisations revealed

Gender pay gap in Thurrock organisations revealed

Councillor Dean Sabri, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Core Support and Strategic Services at Eastbourne Borough Council, said, "I'm proud of where we are in consigning the pay gap to history".

Writing in a statement, Sony Music UK said: "While our gender pay gap is closing, having fewer women in the most senior roles has had an impact".

What do the companies have to reveal? However, that figure rises to 0.9 per cent when shift allowance is taken into consideration.

Of British Airways´ workforce 46 per cent of employees are female and 54 per cent are male.

The numbers are at times uncomfortable reading in an industry that has traditionally been male-dominated, though female executives are increasingly being appointed to senior roles. The mean gap is slightly slimmer with women earning 4.1% more than men.

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

According to the data, one company had stopped paying women by February 22.

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. United Kingdom becomes the first countries to require companies to publish their figures.

Sony noted that more than half of new recruits were women during the past year, with more than a third from BAME backgrounds. At Norwich-based media group Archant, which had a median pay gap of 6.4%, women earned 8.5% more than men in bonuses, and at sports vehicle manufacturer Ransomes Jacobsen in Ipswich the median pay gap put women's pay 7% higher than men's.

Which are the offending companies? It said the quarter of its staff who are male are paid on average one fifth more than the three quarters of women employees. Facebook too is a major offender with big percentage difference between its hourly pay rate and its bonus pay.

The difference in mean hourly pay at Coast is 71%, and 65% at Phase Eight.

Which companies have equal gender pay? .

Has the pay gap reporting process uncovered any discriminatory practices in relation to pay, which could be a legal equal pay issue? EasyJet CEO was recently given a pay cut to match the salary of his female predecessor.

There are signs the approach may be working - several organizations, including the BBC and EasyJet (ESYJY), have taken very public steps in recent months to remedy pay inequity. In fact, there have also been companies which are giving more salaries to their female employees as compared to males.
