Iceland - Legislation on equal pay - March 31, 2017

Iceland will be the first country in the world to make private and public employers prove they offer equal pay regardless of gender, ethnicity, sexuality or nationality. All employers with more than 25 staff members will be required to obtain certification to prove they give equal pay for work of equal value. The government announced the introduction to the parliament of this equality legislation on International Women's Day.
