Combating the gender pay gap: remember not to forget to draw up the 2019-2020 report!

Author: Catherine Mairy (Legal Expert)
Date:

In order to determine whether the remuneration policy conducted within their company is gender neutral, certain employers must make a detailed analysis of the employees’ remuneration structure.

The 1st analysis report concerned the financial year closed in 2014.

The following analysis reports concern two financial years.

The second and third reports were for the financial years 2015-2016 and 2017-2018 respectively.

The following report therefore concerns the financial years 2019-2020.

Employers concerned 

Companies that usually employ an average of at least 50 employees are required to draw up an analysis report of the employees’ remuneration structure.

To obtain the average number of employees employed in the company, the same calculation methods are used as those that apply for the social elections.

Long or short form 

The analysis report of the employees’ remuneration structure is drawn up on the basis of:

  • a long form if the employer usually employs at least 100 employees on average;
  • a short form if the employer usually employs at least 50 employees but less than 100 employees on average.

Procedure and deadlines 

Every two years, the employers concerned must present the analysis report of the employees’ remuneration structure to the Works Council or, in the absence hereof, to the trade union delegation.

This report will be presented and discussed in the course of the 3 months following the closing of the financial year, (in principle) this is 31 March 2021 at the latest for the next report. It will be presented at least 15 days prior to the meeting in which the report is discussed.
