... we don't write (anymore) about Corona. So much has already been written about it - about short-time work, compensation for loss of earnings, home office and much more. As a law firm specialising in employment and corporate law, we too are of course intensively involved in this topic currently and are always available to answer your questions with our specialist knowledge. But even in these times, the legal world does not only revolve around Corona. And so we would like to continue to give you an understanding of a (different) selected labour law topic of particular actuality at this point.
And so a revision of the Federal Act on Gender Equality came into force on 1 July 2020, which obliges all employers with 100 or more employees to carry out an equal pay analysis by 30 June 2021 and to have it verified by an auditing company by 30 June 2022. Subsequently, employees - and in the case of listed companies, shareholders as well - must be informed of the results of the analysis.
Björn Bernhard, who is a lecturer on the basics of labour law at the auditor training course conducted by EXPERTsuisse and recognised by the Swiss Federal Office for Gender Equality, will be happy to answer any further questions you may have in cooperation with a company specialising in conducting equal pay analyses.
