Eight employers that have missed deadlines to report 2022–23 gender pay gap data were this week 'named and shamed'.  

Employers with more than 250 employees must report each year on the average difference in pay in their businesses between men and women, known as the ‘gender pay gap’. 

Organisations that do not publish the data on time receive a warning notice from the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) threatening formal enforcement action, including enforceable action plans or investigations, if they are in breach of equality law. Then, if organisations do not implement the required actions, the EHRC can seek a court order to impose an unlimited fine. 

In April and May 2023, the EHRC sent warning notices to 730 UK employers that had missed 2022-23 reporting deadlines. Most of these have now reported. But seven still have not,  and they have been revealed as:-

ANKH Concepts Hospitality Management Limited
HUC South West Limited (*previously Devon Doctors Limited)
SGS Packaging Europe Limited
The Contact Company Ltd
Amaris Hospitality Limited
FRP Advisory Group Plc
Trust Payments Ltd

English public sector employers are required to provide their gender pay gap information by 30 March, with private and voluntary sector employers across Britain and some public sector bodies in England required to provide the information by 4 April. 

For WorkSmarter clients with more than 250 employees, we are here to help if you need assistance with your gender pay gap reporting obligations.  Don't end up on the above list next year please!
