A guide to prepare gender-sensitive pay audits is published
The Ministry of Equality has prepared, together with the Ministry of Employment and employee and employer representatives, an informative document that seeks to facilitate compliance with pay audit obligations.
Companies that prepare an equality plan need to include a pay audit as an integral part of the situation diagnosis. The purpose of the pay audit is to obtain the information necessary to ascertain whether the company’s remuneration system applies effectively, across the board and comprehensively, the principle of equality between women and men in relation to pay. It must also make it possible to define what is required in order to avoid, correct and prevent existing or potential obstacles and difficulties with a view to guaranteeing gender equality in pay and ensuring that the remuneration system is transparent and is properly monitored.
The Technical Guide to prepare gender-sensitive pay audits is an informative document that explains, in ten steps, the content that a gender-sensitive pay audit should include.
