United Kingdom - Gender pay gap has to be reported - January 31, 2018

Companies with 250 or more workers must publish their figures on the pay discrepancy between men and women irrespective of their job or position by April 2018 and so far, 527 firms have done so. This is prescribed by reporting rules, with the results published on a government database. Ladbrokes, Easyjet and Virgin Money are among the major companies to reveal gender pay gaps of more than 15% in favour of men for mean hourly pay. At Easyjet women's hourly pay rates are 52% lower than men's. On average, women earn 15% less per hour at Ladbrokes and 33% less at Virgin Money. The current gender pay is documented by recent reports and blogs. According to Young Women's Trust, women are losing out on nearly £140 billion a year in wages due to the gender pay gap – or £9,112 each. An official governmental webpage provides an article, Understanding the gender pay gap in the UK, with data and figures.
