Virgin Atlantic is among big firms reported to have a wider gender pay gap than last year, based on analysis by the BBC.
The BBC looked at a company’s median pay gap – the difference in pay between the middle-ranking woman and the middle-ranking man.
Of those 1,146 companies the median gender pay gap reported is 8.4% – a slight improvement from 9.7% last year.
However, Virgin Atlantic Airways’ gender pay gap was 30% against 27.2% last year while Virgin Holidays was down to 23.1% from 30% in favour of men last year.
Tui UK reported a pay gap of 30.7% in favour of men, down from 31.4% last year but higher than the average of all companies, according to the data.
Only about 10% of employers have reported their latest figures so far, ahead of an April 4 deadline for the private sector.
Other large companies with a wider pay gap include Kwik Fit and Npower.
