What is the UNIVERSAL FAIR PAY CHECK®?
The UNIVERSAL FAIR PAY CHECK® is a certification that enables companies to pay all employees fairly, regardless of the company's size, number of employees or organizational structure. The check combines legislative initiatives from Iceland, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland into a single process and takes into account legislation already in place and upcoming legislation. This means that certification is possible regardless of location and the legislation in force.
The procedure was developed by the non-profit Berlin-based FPI Fair Pay Innovation Lab. Its quality has been verified by the EUIPO, which has recognized the procedure as a Union trademark. In addition, the FPI Screening Board of international experts from the United Kingdom, Iceland and Germany monitors the effectiveness of the certification.
The certificate has already been presented to companies such as Reykjavik Energy, Landspitali, BMW AG and Puma Germany under the patronage of German Labor Minister Hubertus Heil.
Our goal: Fair pay for all employees, everywhere in the world.
