Ryanair reveals 67 per cent pay gap between male and female staff making the biggest in the UK airline industry

Not to be confused with equal pay, which has been enforced by law since 1970, gender pay gaps show the difference between the total hourly pay of men and women in an organisation.

Many companies in these sectors share a problem: Men dominate the top ranks of their pay scale, and they tend to have more women in junior roles.

Companies who do not provide their figures could face legal action including court orders and fines.

Her 2014 parliamentary bill called for employers with more than 250 staff to publish data showing the difference in men and women's salaries.

Today is the first gender pay gap reporting deadline.

According to the government, the country's overall pay gap is 18.1 per cent.

"We will get disparity between female and male workers because we have predominantly female nurses and predominantly male consultants", Mrs Bullock said. This will give an idea of how much women are paid per hour and how much the percentage differs. The majority of these staff are likely to be lower paid men; in the division that pays warehouse staff, men outnumber women 7:3 in all quartiles. In other words, when comparing mean hourly rates, women earn 54p for every £1 that men earn.

"Shining a light on where women are being held back means employers can begin to take action", a UK Home Office spokesperson said.

Medical equipment manufacturer Bespak Europe had a median pay gap of 30.1%.

Some industrial sectors have much larger pay gaps, such as air transport with a 35.9 per cent gap, financial and insurance activities with a 32.8 per cent pay gap, the arts with a 36.5 per cent pay gap, and legal and accounting with a 23.8 per cent pay gap.

"Our analysis shows that, in the United Kingdom, men and women are paid broadly comparable rates to market", the bank said in a statement.

But what exactly is the gender pay gap, and what happens if companies miss the deadline?

No official measures for companies that register a high pay gap have been announced.

The gender pay gap is the latest "burning injustice" to be added to the prime minister's list of issues that need confronting in British society.

They also said, "men outnumber women in high performance sport-related roles" and "Davis Cup-related payments in 2016 which also affected our bonus gap". Employers have great intentions but as the pay gap data show, there's still a yawning gap between the corporate rhetoric and the reality of work for too many women. Typically the median is the more representative figure, because the mean can be skewed by a handful of highly paid employees.

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