Gender pay gap reporting deadline extended by 6 months


Share

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has confirmed that gender pay gap enforcement action for the reporting year 2020 to 2021 will be suspended until 5 October 2021.

Without this extension (which has been granted due to the continuing effects of the pandemic) public sector bodies would have had to have got their reports in by 30 March, and private sector bodies by 4 April.

The EHRC has described the delay as striking a balance between supporting businesses through challenging times and enforcing the important gender pay gap reporting obligations. Employers are encouraged by the EHRC to report before October 2021 where possible.
