XpertHR International - The complete list
Our popular International tool provides key information of a country's employment law across the entire employment lifecycle from recruitment to termination of employment. Across our other tools, we have useful guidance that can assist global employers with their HR policies, procedures and practices, and UK employers with an international workforce.
Focus of 2023: Gender pay gap reporting
Gender pay gap reporting legislation and practices vary significantly across different jurisdictions. In some countries, certain employers must report on gender-disaggregated information on pay, including the UK, France, Belgium and Australia. Other countries have taken a different approach focusing on equal pay auditing, non-pay reporting, surveys, equity plans or other related measures such as Canada, Germany, Norway, Spain and Switzerland, while other jurisdictions such as Mexico have proposed legislation under debate. To enable global employers to navigate this tricky area, we have recently added new sections to the pay and benefits chapter of our international guides to reflect current requirements and will monitor any new legislation in the future developments chapter.
