Gender Pay Gap Reporting to be Voluntary in 2020


On 24 March 2020, the Government Equalities Office and the Equality and Human Rights Commission announced the decision to suspend the enforcement of the gender pay gap regulations for the 2019/2020 reporting year in light of the COVID-19 outbreak. This means that there is no requirement for companies to publish their gender pay data by 4 April 2020 for private companies. However, should any companies wish to do so, companies have been encouraged to do so. As at the date of this post, just over 3,000 companies have already reported their gender pay gap data on the government website for this year, compared to around 11,800 companies that published their data last year.
