Women lagged behind men in terms of the proportion receiving bonuses: 74% to 85%.

Jeanette Wheeler, partner and employment lawyer at Birketts, says employers will need a "period of introspection" to assess the reasons for their gender pay gaps - while the necessity for them to report annually will help keep the pressure on. "Most importantly, because equality for women is a right, and our whole society is the poorer as long as it remains unrealised". Firms like mattress retailer Sweet Dreams and nursery business Yellow Dot which pay women 46.4 percent and 35.4 percent more per hour respectively.

"The data so far tell the familiar story of the so-called "glass pyramid" - women outnumbering men in the lower-paid quartiles, with far fewer at the top in higher-paid management and leadership roles".

On Monday, Walthamstow MP Stella Creasy will lead a group of politicians launching an online campaign called #PayMeToo, which aims to give working women advice on how to tackle any disparity.

The rest of the employers either have no median gender pay gap (8%) or one in favour of women (13%).

Employers with 250 or more staff have to report average differences in pay between all male and female employees by law at midnight tonight. The bonus gap was 30.4% (median) and 49.2% (mean). It has made the information publicly available on its own website, reporting an 8.5% median pay gap and 12.4% mean.

Israel cancelling deal with United Nations on African migrants: Netanyahu
Otherwise, he warned "the government of Israel won't be able to convince anyone in the future that infiltrating isn't worthwhile". The Prime Minister's Office then clarified that Netanyahu had just named those countries as examples of Western countries.

"But for all the welcome progress in the decades since, major injustices still hold too many women back".

Both companies said in statements that they planned to do more to promote their workers into better-paid corporate roles while providing more workplace flexibility. "We're committed to making the right changes and working towards closing this gap". In finance, women are paid 40 per cent less than men because of these career gaps they have to take.

Those who do not report their figures within the expected time frame will face investigation - if taken to court, an unlimited fine can be imposed. The firm employs more men than women across the board. That pay gap is smaller than most United Kingdom companies, and less than comparable tech companies.

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. In every other division, men are paid significantly more.

The main opposition Labour party, which put out its figures in February, said it pays men slightly higher on average.
