Cyprus - Gender pay gap documented - August 31, 2016

According to the Structure of Earnings Survey (SES), published every four years, men receive on average a substantial higher wage than female employees do. The purpose of the SES is to provide detailed and comparable information on the level of remuneration, individual characteristics of employees (sex, age, occupation, length of service, highest educational level attained, etc.) and their employer (economic activity, size, etc.). The survey shows that the mean hourly earnings of employees in 2014 were €10.46 for full-time and €7.06 for part-time workers. Full-time male employees received on average €11.06 while female employees received €9.78. The corresponding figures for part-time employees were €7.28 for males and €6.94 for females. Based on the hourly earnings of all employees, for the total of the economic activities and occupations covered by the survey, the gender pay gap as a percentage of the earnings of males was 12.7%.
