Obligation to carry out an equal pay analysis for companies with more than 100 employees


On December 14, 2018, the Parliament passed an amendment to the Equal Opportunities Act, which obliges employers with 100 or more employees (without apprentices) to carry out an equal pay analysis.


The changes came into force on July 1, 2020, so that the employers concerned must carry out an in-house equal pay analysis by the end of June 2021 at the latest. Due to the so-called sunset clause, the provisions will automatically expire on July 1, 2032.


The equal pay analysis must be checked by an independent body. The audits may be carried out by: Audit firms with a license under the Audit Oversight Act, employee representatives or women's or men's organizations that promote equality between women and men according to their statutes.


Do you have any questions about the implementation of the equal pay analysis or are you looking for an independent auditor? We are at your disposal if you have any questions about the implementation and as an auditor. We look forward to your call.
