Time Running Out to Publish Gender Pay Gap Data

Friday 19th January 2018

With time running out until organisations with 250 or more employees are required to publish their gender pay gap data, employers should now be compiling relevant data and carrying out the necessary calculations if they have not already done so.

As a reminder, private businesses and public bodies are required to publish their data both on their own website and the Government’s gender pay gap website by 4 April 2018 and 30 March 2018 respectively.  At the time of writing only 620 (out of an estimated 9,000) organisations have published their data, which can be found here.

Comment:      With organisations that do not comply with their duty to publish their gender pay gap data potentially facing unlimited fines and convictions (according to the enforcement plan published by the Equality and Human Rights Commission), it is imperative that organisations take the appropriate steps now to ensure compliance.

If you require any advice in respect of gender pay gap reporting, please contact the Employment Team.
