EPIC launches a global database on equal pay legislation

24 Mar 2021

On the 17th of March 2021, the Equal Pay International Coalition (EPIC) launched its Equal Pay Around the World Database. The database is a repository of national legal and policy resources. It provides information on countries’ obligations to international treaties, their equal pay legislation, whether they have transparency and minimum wage policies in place, information on their collective bargaining frameworks and other relevant information on national plans and legal reforms.

The database is the result of an extensive research and validation process conducted by the ILO for EPIC. The database currently includes information on more than 106 countries, but work is ongoing to have additional countries uploaded as soon as possible.

The database will monitor progress on equal pay legislation and highlight legislative trends and standard policy approaches to pay equity.

Visit the database to learn – how countries around the world are accelerating action towards gender equality, with respect to wages. We count on you to inform us of any updates happening in your countries by sending an email to epic@ilo.org.
