To ask the Minister for Women and Equalities, what penalties are available for companies that fail to report on gender pay gaps by 4 April 2018.
Large employers have to report their gender pay gap by the deadline, 30 March for the public sector and 4 April for the private and voluntary sector. This is not optional; it is the law.
Employers who fail to report on time will be in breach of the regulations and risk facing legal action from the Equality and Human Rights Commission. This could ultimately lead to court orders and fines.
