Theresa May commits to tackling 'burning injustice' of gender pay gap as deadline to reveal figures looms.

Firms with more than 250 employees have until midnight tonight to publish their gender pay gap

Theresa May has promised to tackle the “burning injustice” of gender pay inequality as the deadline for big firms to publish their salary figures looms.

The Prime Minister said the gender pay gaps among businesses would make for “uncomfortable reading” but argued society would remain “poorer” if practices of the past go unchallenged.

However, her own party was left red faced as it emerged the Tories would fail to publish their figures – although on a voluntary basis – until a day after the deadline.

Firms with more than 250 employees have until midnight tonight to publish their average gap between the pay of men and women.
