The paper examines the amount of gender pay gap (GPG) in the selected company to find out if the company wage discriminates women or not. To estimate the discriminatory component of gender pay gap, authors have used two methods: the Oaxaca-Blinder decomposition and the method of pair-wise comparison. The authors conclude that in selected companies the gender pay gap is about 19%. This pay gap cannot be explained by different performance characteristics of men and women in this company. By contrast, women have better characteristics compared to men. Their wages should be higher than the wage of men. Using the Oaxaca-Blinder decomposition, it was found that the effect of discrimination makes up more than 100% of GPG. The existence of wage discrimination against women in the company has been confirmed using method of pair-wise comparison too.
