Mishcon de Reya Employment Partner Jennifer Millins has been quoted in the Irish Independent commenting on the BBC high earners list, which has been published for the second year.
Jennifer, who represented Carrie Gracie in her equal pay dispute with the BBC, said:
“Pay equality at the BBC appears to remain an aspiration, not a reality.
“There are significant differences in the reporting, for example – this year’s list details what programmes employees work on and how many programmes they commit to.
“This does not allow for a direct comparison to be drawn by anyone concerned that they may have an equal pay claim, but it will be one of a number of factors that determines pay.
“It is important to remember that the BBC’s equal pay crisis affects women at all levels of the corporation.”
Jennifer also featured on Sky News commenting on the list.
