Gender pay gap at Lewes District Council revealed

Women's fashion and beauty brands are some of the worst offenders in the gender pay gap league tables, the last-minute rush to file results ahead of Wednesday's deadline revealed. Entertainment UK (30.9%), Creative Assembly (20.3%) and Codemasters (22.2%).

It's been an uncomfortable exercise for many companies, but advocates welcome the mandatory disclosures.

Gender pay gaps have little to do with unequal pay, but quite a lot to do with unequal representation.

Unlike England, councils in Wales do not have to publish data on gender pay gaps but have to take steps to address any identified differences.

Yorkshire Water has revealed it has a 4.8 per cent mean gender pay gap compared to the national average of 17.4 per cent. Only 8% said that they do not practice any gender pay gap.

Vertical segregation (otherwise known as the "glass ceiling") is what most people think of when they think of the gender pay gap, and it describes the way senior positions tend to be dominated by men.

However, in some cases Hyland points towards old fashioned sexism as being at the root of at least some of these issues.

She added that it was an "urgent priority" to get more women progressing through the company.

Women who work at the Principality Building Society are paid, on average, 31.5% less than men.

The organisation said when creating its pay structure it ensured caretakers (mostly men) and customer services teams (predominantly female) were on the same levels. This is calculated as the percentage difference between the average hourly salary for men and the average hourly salary for women. "It's a programme we started more than 10 years ago".
