The Government Equalities Office continues to encourage organisations with fewer than 250 employees to publish gender pay gap data voluntarily, and supports them to do so. Several employers under the threshold reported in the first reporting year, and some have already done so ahead of the deadlines for the second year.

We recognise the challenges that smaller organisations face in compiling the data, and would consult with stakeholders on feasibility and possible implications before extending the regulations.
