Newsflash: Gender Pay Gap Reporting Suspension

Employment / 24 February 2021

The Government announced yesterday that there will be a six month suspension to the enforcement of the gender pay gap regulations because of the impact of COVID-19.

This means that employers now have until 5 October 2021 (not 4 April 2021) to report their gender pay gap information for the 2020/2021 reporting year (using a snapshot date of 5 April 2020, or 31 March 2020 for public sector bodies).

No enforcement action will be taken if employers report by that date.
