Men paid more in 78% of employers

Men paid more in 78% of employers

The office has now published these figures.

The gender pay gap is calculated as the difference between the average salaries of men and women - it is not the same as equal pay, where firms are required to pay people doing the same job the same salary regardless of gender.

Companies which failed face legal action and there was a last-minute dash to meet the deadline.

Analysis by the BBC shows that Scotland's biggest company, power firm SSE, paid women 19.3% less on average with one of its subsidiary companies, Scottish Hydroelectric Transmission, paying 36.1% less to women.

The mean hourly rate is the average hourly wage across the entire company so the mean gender pay gap is a measure of the difference between women's mean hourly wages and men's mean hourly wages.

It encourages women to speak to their colleagues and bosses about the need to tackle gender pay gaps, and advises that they join a trade union and set up a women's network at work.

One day after horrific spill, Tony Finau plays Masters on tender ankle
With his ankle visibly damaged, he appeared to lean down and simply push it back into place before limping back to the tee. Finau then proceeded to sprint towards the hole in celebration. "It's nothing short of a miracle for me".

Prime Minister Theresa May introduced legislation past year to make it compulsory for companies with more than 250 employees to give information about the difference in salary on the gender basis to the Government Equity Office.

Companies had to file data based on a "snapshot" of their payroll taken on 5 April 2017.

Chief executive of the EHRC Rebecca Hilsenrath said: "This is not optional; it is the law and we will be fully enforcing against all companies that do not report".

The figures suggested Millwall Holdings PLC the parent company of Millwall FC, reported a gender pay gap of 80%; GoToDoc, which runs GP practices, urgent care and after hours dental services in the North West had 77%; and women's underwear chain Boux Avenue had 75.7%.

She said: "We believe, as we are now seeing in the United Kingdom, that by shining the spotlight on any gender based pay discrepancies, companies can address and remedy such inequalities where they exist".

The study involving a group of Arizona State University students found that women believed they were far less intelligent than others, even when their grades were equally good; in contrast, the males thought themselves more intelligent.
