Equal pay analysis

The revision of the law in the area of equal pay has a wide range of implications for companies. KPMG advises you on the opportunities that arise for you.

Since July 1, 2020, companies with 100 or more employees must conduct an equal pay analysis within one year.

The analysis must then be audited by an external auditor within the one-year period ending June 30, 2022.

Finally, employees must be informed of the results in writing by law. Listed companies must publish the results in the notes to the annual financial statements.

Steps to achieve equal pay

The law requires that companies' equal pay analyses be reviewed by an external, independent body.

KPMG is your competent partner for this. Furthermore, KPMG will also be happy to support you in preparing the analysis or to carry out an Equal Pay certification.

In short: KPMG accompanies you all the way in the area of equal pay.
