The telecoms giant has 17,000 employees in Sweden, 25 percent of which are women. The salary survey carried out by JämO found that in 54 percent of all work groups inside the company, women had lower salaries than men with the same job requirements and level of responsibility, writes the Blekinge Läns Tidningen newspaper.
A total of 115 women received lower pay than men without any logical explanation.
The women have now had their salaries adjusted by between 400 and 4000 kronor ($65 to $655) per month.
