The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has announced that due to the continued effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, it will only commence enforcement action against employers failing to report their gender pay gap after 5 October 2021.

The Gender Pay Gap Reporting Regulations require employers with 250 or more relevant employees to report their gender pay gap.

The regulations state that public sector bodies covered by the regulations must report their data by 30 March. Private sector employers across Great Britain are required to report by 4 April. The changes for the 2020/21 reporting year give those required to meet the regulations an additional six months to report their data before legal action begins, although employers are encouraged to submit their data for 2020/2021 before October where possible.

The press release is available on the EHRC website.
