The Federal Act on Gender Equality (Gender Equality Act) aims to facilitate enforcement of the right under the Swiss Federal Constitution to equal pay for the same work of equal value.

With their decision to amend the Gender Equality Act, the Federal Council and Parliament are pursuing the goal of realising pay equality between men and women through government measures.
