Firms will have another six months to report on their gender pay gap before action is taken against them, the equalities watchdog has said.

Enforcement to make firms share the data was suspended for a year in March 2020 because of coronavirus.

The Equalities and Human Rights Commission said the additional delay “strikes the right balance” between supporting business and the regulation.

But Labour said it was “unacceptable” and enforcement needs to be reinstated.
