International Gender Pay and Equal Pay Regulations

30 July 2019


Over the past few years, the pressure for companies to report on the gender pay gap or comply with equal pay legislation has grown across the world. For example, in the US, laws are being introduced at the city and state level, while in Europe and Australia at the country level.


In order to comply, you need to first have clarity on your country (or state, city) specific requirements. Mercer’s Law & Policy (L&P) Group is a team of lawyers, actuaries and technical experts who analyze global legislative, regulatory, judicial and government relations issues.
