The Federal Act on Gender Equality aims to implement the principle of equality between men and women in the field of employment. It prohibits any form of discrimination - direct or indirect – between male and female employees on account of their gender, especially in relation to civil status, family situation or, in the case of women, pregnancy. This prohibition applies throughout the employment relationship, starting with recruitment.
