THE BBC has been accused of charity “hush money” to womanlike stars in a bid to keep them still over the gender compensate gap, it has been claimed.
Bosses reportedly held talks with womanlike stars in the lead up to the compensate revelations.
The brawl could see at slightest 10 mad womanlike presenters sue the BBC if it does not close the gender compensate gap.
Speaking to the Mirror, Radio 4 presenter Jane Garvey pronounced that “at slightest two distinguished women presenters” had been offering compensate rises “within the last couple of weeks.”
Sources have claimed that several women were offering high salaries or future work opportunities in the run up to the compensate revelations.
One said: “The BBC competence report them as agreement negotiations, but it looked like hush income to me.”
Another added: “There is a genuine feeling that it is a old boys’ bar at the top of the BBC when it comes to talent pay.”
In response to the claims, a BBC orator said: “This is finish and complete nonsense.
“It is simply wrong – we’ve already pronounced we’re shutting the gender compensate opening and going serve and faster than supervision and other companies, so there’s no need to overpower anyone.”
On Wednesday the broadcaster published a full list of the 96 people who earn some-more than £150,000 exposing a outrageous inconsistency in wages, with just one lady – Claudia Winkleman – featuring in its top 10 best-paid stars.
Only two women were in the corporation’s top 14 earners, sparking an equivalence quarrel which Director-General Tony Hall has vowed to address.
Prime Minister Theresa May was among those to blast the total and call for the Beeb to compensate men and women the same.
She said: “What has happened currently is we have seen the way the BBC is profitable women reduction for doing the same pursuit as the men.
“I wish to see women paid equally with men.
She insisted the gender liaison would still have remained secret if it wasn’t for Tory ministers’ demands.
The Beeb was forced to exhibit the information by the supervision under the terms of its new 11-year stately licence negotiated with David Cameron’s Conservative government.
Labour personality Jeremy Corbyn said he would make the party’s election guarantee on the BBC to safeguard a limit 20 to one compensate ratio between the top and lowest paid staff in the open sector. This would cap any annual income at £400,000 if the lowest BBC compensate is £20,000 a year.
