Fair-ON-Pay: a pragmatic process with a single point of contact

Fair-On-Pay’s standardized process is simple and efficient. Companies only need to provide certain personnel data. Fair-ON-Pay experts then take over the entire preparation of the data and its consistent and correct processing for the gender pay gap analysis. Therefore, no on-site meetings are required.

The process itself is divided into several steps. Fair-ON-Pay experts are your direct point of contact throughout the process. In general, the Fair-ON-Pay analysis process takes only 4 to 6 weeks.

Fair-ON-Pay: issue of the label

The certificate is possible for companies with more than 50 employees. The Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS) verifies the compliance of the documents with the Fair-ON-Pay standards and issues the certificate if all requirements are met.

From 2023 onwards, there are two labels with different requirements:


  • Analysis by Fair-ON-Pay experts
  • Complete data basis and correct preparation
  • Compliance with tolerance threshold of 5%

Fair-ON-Pay Advanced

  • Analysis by Fair-ON-Pay experts
  • Complete data basis and correct preparation
  • Compliance with the demanding threshold of 2.5%
  • Calculated net gap is not over 5%
  • Narrow confidence intervall (within 7.5% wide)
  • Indepentend structural element (other than role)

The certificate is valid for 4 years. A maintenance analysis is performed two years after the first analysis.

There is a standardized procedure with a checklist for data preparation. The Fair-ON-Pay experts as well as SGS maintain absolute confidentiality (the data submitted will not be used for other services).
