The Government Equalities Office (GEO) and the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) made the announcement to suspend enforcement of gender pay gap reporting yesterday (March 24).

 

This means there will be no expectation on employers to report their data.

 

In a joint statement, minister for women and equalities, Liz Truss, and chair of the EHRC, David Isaac, said: “We recognise that employers across the country are facing unprecedented uncertainty and pressure at this time. Because of this we feel it is only right to suspend enforcement of gender pay gap reporting this year.”

 

This would have been the third year that UK organisations, with more than 250 employees, would have been legally required to publish a snapshot of their gender pay gap.

 

The GEO said more than 3,000 employers had already reported their data this year - 26 percent of expected reporters.
