Equal pay self-test tool Logib: Check your pay practice quickly and easily

The private sector plays a fundamental role in advancing gender equality and women's rights. From 1 July 2020, Swiss companies with at least 100 employees will have to carry out regular pay equity analyses. In order to facilitate the implementation of this obligation, the Confederation provides a free self-test tool - called Logib - to check whether there are any wage inequalities in a company with at least 50 employees. This software allows employers to make a simple review of their pay policy. Detailed instructions and the answers to frequently asked questions are provided in order to ease the use of this tool and the interpretation of the results.
