Repeat late gender pay gap reporters named and shamed by equality regulator
Three organisations that have failed to report their gender pay gap information on time for the second year in a row have been publicly named and shamed by the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
We have already issued a warning to the organisations, who all filed late reports last year and have so far failed to report this year.
The organisations’ names are published below and we have notified them that we will now proceed to the next stage of statutory investigations as a result of their failure to publish on time again this year.
The organisations have 14 days to comment on our draft terms of reference for the investigations.
The investigations will look at whether the companies are breaking the law by failing to publish their gender pay gap information.
If so, 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 with an unlimited fine.
The organisations are:
- Typhoo Tea Ltd
- Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Limited
- Northern Automotive Systems Ltd
Rebecca Hilsenrath, the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s Chief Executive said:
'To tackle gender inequality in the workplace we first need transparency. All employers with 250 or more employees have to publish their gender pay gap information where everyone can see it. It’s the law and we take very seriously indeed any failure to do so, particularly for 2 years in a row.
'These employers are not only facing investigations by the regulator, they are sending a message to their staff that they don’t care about equality and are exposing themselves to serious reputational damage.'
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.
10,738 organisations have reported their gender pay gaps for this year.
In addition to the three organisations named above, on Monday 20 May we will be naming any other employers that have still not reported this year’s information and beginning formal investigation proceedings against them.
