EPIC Webinar series: Swiss edition

United Nations Public Service Award 2018

Webinar: Tackling the gender pay gap with digital solutions

The FOGE will host a webinar in which it will show how employers, whether private or public, can concretely check that they respect the principle of equal pay for work of equal value between women and men. It will do so by demonstrating the use of Logib, a webtool developed by Switzerland and recently labeled as good practice by the Equal Pay International Coalition (EPIC).

Logib as a webtool

Commitment to equal pay in the public sector

Equal pay: Logib now available as web-based application

The revised Gender Equality Act comes into force on 1 July. This means that employers with 100 or more staff are required to conduct an equal pay analysis. To help achieve this, the federal government is to make Logib, its standard analysis tool, available to employers as a web-based application.
