Gender pay gap: More than 500 firms reveal their figures

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. The Ladbrokes Coral group put its gender pay gap largely down to "Weak representation at our senior levels" and Virgin Money said it was "Confident" men and women were paid equally for the same jobs. The gender pay gap is the pay discrepancy between men and women irrespective of their job or position. Firms paying women significantly more include mattress retailer Sweet Dreams - which said women were paid 46.4% more - and nursery business Yellow Dot, where women's hourly rate is 35.4% more. Last year, a report published by the BBC found there was a 10.7% gender pay gap in favour of men when the mean average hourly pay rates were compared.
