    Gender pay gap rules in detail

    The Swiss Parliament is working on the implementation of new legislation on the gender pay gap. Based on the current proposal, a company with more than 50 employees would have to carry out an ‘equal pay analysis’. This analysis would have to be audited by an independent institution (e.g. audit company, equal pay expert or works council) and notified to the employees. The analysis would have to be repeated every four years. There are no direct sanctions related to this analysis; however, it might help employees to claim equal pay on an individual basis. It is not yet clear when the new legislation will enter into force.
