Law firms/gender pay gap: disparity clarity

Based on the recently-enacted UK law, companies based in the United Kingdom with 250 or more employee must issue their gender-gap report every year, granted.

What’s less clear is the kind of data analysed: in this FT article, law firms allegedly didn’t include partner-level employee in the final overview, which inclusion would have widened the gap THREE times.

Eg. Clifford Change would have gone from 20% to 66%, Linklaters from 23% to 60% and A&O from 20% to 60%. Moreover, Freshfields from 14% to 56%.
