'Last chance saloon' for firms on reporting gender pay gap.

Firms yet to publish their gender pay gap by next week's deadline are being warned they are entering the "last chance saloon".

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) raised the spectre of unlimited fines for those who fail to comply with the disclosure demand.

Employers with 250 or more workers - believed to total around 9,000 companies - have to submit their median
and mean gender pay gap figures to the Government Equalities Office by 4 April - that is the Wednesday after Easter.

The deadline for public sector employers is earlier - Good Friday.

According to the Government's database of company data , fewer than half have submitted the required information.
Figures that have so far been published by 3,745 such firms show 77.6% have a median gender pay gap in favour of men, 8.3% have none, and 14.1% in favour of women.
