Hundreds of companies face legal action after failing to meet an extended deadline to report their gender pay gap, Britain’s equality watchdog said.

Companies with more than 250 staff must now publish the details on their own websites and on a government site.

Many did this only after the Equality and Human Rights Commission began enforcement action last month.

Ms Hilsenrath said: “Last month, we contacted almost 1,500 businesses to commence enforcement proceedings and as a result the number of employers facing investigation is now under 500.”
