ON ACTUAL OCCASION...

... 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, obligation to vaccinate and much more. As a law firm specialising in employment and corporate law, we too are of course involved in this topic currently and are always available to answer your questions with our specialist knowledge. But even in these times, the working 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 and to have it verified by an auditing company. Subsequently, employees - and in the case of listed companies, shareholders as well - must be informed of the results of the analysis.

Bj├Ârn 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.
