We are naming and shaming 47 organisations that have failed to report their latest gender pay gap following the March and April deadlines.
We notified all 47 organisations that we will commence formal investigations and assessments to determine if they are breaking the law by withholding their gender pay gaps.
If this is the case, they will be required to publish the figures immediately and organisations that do not cooperate could be issued with a formal notice which is enforceable in court and in most cases with an unlimited fine.
We also recently named three organisations who failed to report on time two years in a row. However, they have since reported.
Rebecca Hilsenrath, our Chief Executive, said:
'Transparency is a vital first step if we are to achieve gender equality in the workplace.
'All employers with 250 or more employees are legally required to publish their gender pay gap where everyone can see it.
'There’s no excuse for missing the deadline and we will be making sure that all employers that haven’t published their figures are held to account.'
All organisations with 250 or more employees are required to publish their gender pay gap information every year on their own website (in a way that is accessible to all their employees and the public) and on the Government’s official portal.
The deadline to do so is midnight on 30 March for public sector employers and midnight on 4 April for private and voluntary sector employers.
10,753 organisations have reported their gender pay gaps for this year.
