The gender pay gap: what median pay gap says about your company?
In the UK regulations to publish data on the gender pay gap came into force,
companies with over 250 employees were required from 2018 to publish
figures on their gender pay gap. In 2017 the then UK Prime Minister Theresa
May called the gender pay gap a ‘burning injustice’.
The gender pay gap is not about equal pay- the Equal Pay Act 1970, updated in
2018 ensures that it is unlawful employment practice for employers to pay less
in wages, benefits, or compensation to members of a protected class for
“substantially similar work.
The gender pay gap says something else about a company. It is a measure of
the median wage – ie the difference between middle ranking men and middle
ranking women. The simplest explanation of a difference is that there are more
men earning more and more women earning less. But if people get paid the
same for the same job, why would this happen? This is your task to
understand. You will be thinking about why it is that there are more high
earning men in top positions, there are likely to be more women working part
time and there are likely to be ‘gendered roles’ – when you think of a doctor
who do you picture? When you think of a nurse who is it? Exactly. Why do all
these things happen?
But – what should, could and can companies do about it?
