In February 2021, the EHRC confirmed that all employers with a headcount of 250 employees or more would have to submit their gender pay gaps based on the 2020 snapshot date. Due to the lateness of this confirmation, they also stated that no enforcement action would be taken prior to the end of September 2021. As result, fewer employers than expected have reported 2020 data so far so I have used methods of imputation to estimate that the median gender pay gap among these employers narrowed by between 0.3 & 0,6 pence in the pound in 2020. As more data is submitted between now and September, I will update this estimate.
