Businesses could face court over failure to report gender pay gap

Companies who fail to report their gender pay gap could be pursued through the courts, the chief executive of the Equality and Human Rights Commission has warned.

Rebecca Hilsenrath, CEO of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, has said companies that fail to report the difference paid to male and female employees by the April deadline will be named and shamed, The Guardian reports.

All companies and public bodies with more than 250 employees are legally obliged to publish their gender pay gap, their bonus pay gap and to reveal the proportion of men and women in each quartile of their business by 4 April.
