47 organisations yet to report latest gender pay gap named and shamed
21 May 2019
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has notified 47 organisations that it will commence formal investigations and assessments to determine if they are breaking the law by withholding their gender pay gaps.
In the second year of gender pay gap reporting, EHRC has named and shamed the 47 organisations that have failed to submit their reports by the 2019 March and April deadlines.
If following investigations, these companies have fallen foul of the law then they will be required to publish the figures immediately. Any organisations that do not cooperate with EHRC could be issued with a formal notice which is enforceable in court and in most cases with an unlimited fine.
The full list of organisations who haven't reported is available on EHRC's website.
Earlier this month EHRC also named three organisations who had failed to report on time for the second year in a row, however they have since reported their gender pay gap figures.
All organisations with 250 or more employees are required to publish their gender pay gap information every year on their own website (in a way that is accessible to all their employees and the public) and on the Government’s official portal.
The deadline to do so is midnight on 30 March for public sector employers and midnight on 4 April for private and voluntary sector employers.
10,753 organisations have reported their gender pay gaps for this year.
