Ladbrokes Coral aims to close gender pay gap Ted Menmuir, SBC News · January 8, 2018 at 8:59 am The governance of FTSE-listed bookmaker Ladbrokes Coral Plc has stated that it will work to close its gender pay gap, following the publication of corporate statistics by the UK government. Under the requirements of ‘The 2010 Equality Act’, UK companies with more than 250 staff have to disclose yearly gender pay employee data. Ladbrokes Coral, the UK’s biggest retail betting operator is among the first 500 firms to disclose figures. The bookmaker reveals that its mean hourly pay for female staff is on average 15% less than for men. However, Ladbrokes Coral states that its 15% gender pay-gap disparity is significantly impacted by its senior-level executive pay structure, in which the FTSE bookmaker admits to having a ‘weak representation’ of female executives.
