  • Kate Andrews April 3 2018 12:01am The Times Gender pay gap figures are no help to working women Kate Andrews

An Amazon spokesperson said: "Our gender pay gap analysis shows a -0.7% difference in favour of women, compared to the United Kingdom average of 18.4% in favour of men".

Stoke City Football Club, for example, reported a mean gender pay gap of 92.5% - but that figure includes its highly paid male soccer stars.

Do you have more men at the top, which may represent a failure to properly recruit or promote women?

Four in ten (46 per cent) adults who use an investment company are likely to switch their provider.

All UK companies with 250 or more employees are required to file their data by midnight tonight, with more than 9,100 having now submitted data up to date as of 5 April past year. As such, it appears that this group has had a significant impact on Amazon's topline gender pay gap.

The Welsh Government's gender pay gap is just over 8%.

Prince Philip due to have hip surgery
Buckingham Palace said in a short statement: "The Duke of Edinburgh has undergone a successful hip replacement operation". In June 2017, he spent two nights in hospital as a "precautionary measure" for the treatment of an undisclosed infection.

A number of household name employers, including Unilever and BT, pay women on average more than men.

Data reported by Oxford show that almost 63% of the university's top paid employees are men, while women make up 65% of the lowest pay band.

For median hourly rates, the budget airline pays women just 28p for every £1 earned by men.

News show Outside Source, which is simulcast on the BBC news channel and BBC World News, has already achieved a 50:50 gender split after adopting a system of self-monitoring in January 2017.

Niki Kandirikiria, director of programmes at Equality Now, hopes that companies with large pay gaps will take it on themselves to analyse what is causing the discrepancy and what they can do to adjust it. In every other division, men are paid significantly more.

Globally the trend is similar, with men earning more in wages, prize money and sponsorship. There will be women all over the country who are quite simply being cheated out of what they are entitled to or men who are being over-rewarded.

Kashmir shut by strike, security day after deadly fighting
The police said that surging crowds resorted to heavy stone-pelting on security forces "compelling them to use force". An FIR into the incident has been registered and investigation into the matter set into motion, the police said.

Women and equalities minister Amber Rudd said: "Reporting is an important first step, but what matters now is that employers actually take action".

More than 2,500 companies, equivalent to one in four, submitted their gender pay gap figures in the 48 hours before midnight.

Hyland believes horizontal segregation may have something to do with explaining the video game industry's gender pay gap problem. Typically the median is the more representative figure, because the mean can be skewed by a handful of highly paid employees.

"We are also doing a lot of work to improve our flexible working culture across the university for all staff, recognising the link between the gender pay gap and the imbalance in caring and parenting responsibilities". Executive ranks are also dominated by men. Women lagged behind men in terms of the proportion receiving bonuses: 74% to 85%.

The disparity is a result of Apple's leadership ranks being filled with men.

"We are committed to increasing the representation of women at all levels".

Max Holloway: 'Opportunities Like This Come Once in a Lifetime'
