A bank employee receiving pay and benefits worth £31,610 less per year for doing the same job as her male counterpart accepted a £150,000 settlement three days before an ET hearing. Employed between 1 September 2010 and 15 November 2017, Miss Williams’ (W) starting salary was £45,000, but her male counterpart received £65,000. W’s benefits package was 15% of base salary, but her male colleague received 25%. After raising a grievance in June 2017, W was made redundant. W was offered £150,000 to settle the case in October 2018 if she agreed to a gagging clause, but she refused. The case settled after the gagging clause condition was dropped.
