Gender pay gap reporting non-compliance

04 June 2018

On 9 April 2018, the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) started enforcement action against the 1,456 employers who were believed to be in breach of the rules. As of 14 May 2018, fewer than 400 employers remain on the list.

The deadlines for employers to report their gender pay gap information were 30 March 2018 (for public sector employers) and 4 April 2018 (for private and voluntary sector employers). Nearly 10,000 employers reported ahead of the deadline.

EHRC’s on-going enforcement and engagement with businesses has raised compliance rates so only a small number of organisations have yet to report.

The Commission has also started early enforcement against employers who have provided what appears to be statistically implausible data. The names of any employers facing investigation will be released in due course.
