Gender pay gap reporting – six months suspension to the enforcement of gender pay gap regulations

Linkedin

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (the “EHRC”) has announced that employers now have until 5 October 2021 to report their gender pay gap information for the 20/21 reporting year. Last year, you may recall that the enforcement of gender pay gap deadlines were fully suspended as a result of the pandemic – whereas this year the EHRC has provided an additional six months extension so that as long as reports are filed by 5 October 2021 no enforcement action will be taken.

Accordingly, gender gap reporting is still very much on the “to-do” list for employers with more than 250 employees. In this alert we remind employers of what they need to report and how to account for furlough leave in their gender pay data.
