Cricket and tennis are the sports with the largest disparities between men's and women's pay, figures released by the Government have revealed.

By law employers with 250 or more staff have to report average differences in pay between all male and female employees at midnight tonight.

Other video game companies with gender pay gaps higher than the national average include Warner Bros.

When the players were discounted, the gender pay pap fell to 8.8 per cent.

Experts say having fewer women in senior positions is a big part of the problem.

Women at Sports Direct earn 6.3% less than men, but the gender pay gap is significantly worse when it comes to bonus payments. Female executives are also paid 88% less on average than men in the same roles.

In terms of bonus gaps, several NHS trusts have some of the highest figures with Hull And East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust General Purposes Charity revealing a figure of 99.4%.

How is the pay gap calculated?

Arsenal said it's committed to increasing diversity, and hiring more women to senior jobs. Companies should also provide an explanation of why their gender pay gap exists and what they plan to do to close it.

Within the first two years of working in a tech job, women in the USA ask for and receive 98 percent of what their male counterparts make in the same job at the same company, according to the report.

She said: "When you have a child you have to come out of the workplace".

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), whose job it is to impose sanctions on non-complying firms, said it will write to employers who have not submitted their figures on April 9, giving them 28 days to do so "before an investigation takes place and an unlawful act notice is issued". In finance, women are paid 40 per cent less than men because of these career gaps they have to take.




"But even better than that, finally women are realising that they have a right to talk about pay and they can not be silenced".

How does gender pay gap reporting work?

Cheshire East Council's gender pay gap stands at 14.3%, although Cheshire West and Chester Council's is just 1.9%. Its budget competitor EasyJet landed at 52%.

The companies have to disclose the mean and median gaps between hourly wages for a male and female employer. The difference, known as the gender pay gap, is created by an imbalance in representation - specifically, a higher proportion of men in senior roles.

Fellow leisure operators TUI Airways and Thomas Cook Airlines both report median gaps of around 45% and mean gaps of around 55%. The mean gap is slightly slimmer with women earning 4.1% more than men. The firm employs more men than women across the board.

Apple also boasts a median pay gap in women's favour - by a margin of two per cent.

Smaller pay gaps in East Anglia have proved not to be sector-specific. 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. Thirty percent of our employee population are women.

Nearly all of the East Anglian companies required to report revealed a pay gap favouring men, with construction group Breheny, audio visual firm Midwich and insurance giant Aviva revealing some of the biggest gaps. In terms of the value of those bonuses, however, the money received by women was below the amount awarded to men in almost all cases. Its brands reported their gender gap figures separately. It was 55% at Phase Eight.

"It is often said that sunlight is the best disinfectant".

"I think those companies need to think very carefully about who is buying their products and what message this sends", warned Doyle-Morris.

The BBC said in January that it would be more transparent about what it pays its correspondents, and offer salaries in narrower bands.
