What does equality mean?

Equality is the equality of the sexes.

From the perspective of the world of work, equality means that there must be no difference between the sexes.

In concrete terms: neither gender may be favoured or discriminated against in the allocation of tasks, pay or promotion.

This is how it is in Switzerland

In Switzerland, gender equality has been enshrined in the Federal Constitution since 1981. This means: Legal and actual equality is enshrined in law, as is the right to equal pay for equal work or work of equal value.

Direct and indirect discrimination in all employment relationships is prohibited. This is to ensure equal opportunities in working life.
