The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) and the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) has released new guidance on tackling the gender pay gap, amid fears it has been de-prioritised by business. 

In the UK, it is mandatory for organisations of 250 or more employees to publish their gender pay gap (GPG) every year, but due to the Covid-19 outbreak, GPG reporting in 2020 was suspended. 

While enforcement will resume on 4 October 2021, there are concerns that businesses are not acting fast enough on GPG, despite evidence showing women have been disproportionately disadvantaged during the Covid-19 pandemic.
