Slaughter and May gender pay brackets: par for the course
Slaughter and May has published its gender pay brackets, becoming the latest magic circle firm to do so as the 4 April deadline approaches.
As the numbers reveal, the firm’s male employees receive an average of close to 55% more in bonuses than female employees. The figure is 38.5% on a median basis.
As more firms publish their figures, the pattern of the pay inequality strengthens. Slaughter and May fairs slightly better than Linklaters, which showed male employees receiving 60% more in bonuses and 39.1% more by median figures. Neither firm measures up to Allen & Overy, whose median pay gap is at 27.4%.
