If you are a housing association which had 250 or more employees on 1st April 2017, you are required under The Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 to produce a Gender Pay Gap Report by 4th April 2018.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) published its enforcement strategy in mid-December 2017 which summarised their approach to enforcing compliance with the regulations.

The EHRC will approach randomly selected non-compliant employers within each industry, giving them a final notice to comply.

Where employers fail to respond or report within the given deadline, the EHRC will carry out formal investigations, and the employer could face unlimited fines.

The strategy also reveals that action may be taken against employers for publishing inaccurate data.

As of 22nd December 2017, only 470 employees in the UK had published their Gender Pay Gap Reports - only four of which were housing associations. This article by Kimberley Wallace will provide useful guidance for the many who still have this on their 'to do' list.
