Iceland: Illegal To Pay Men More Than Women

As of January 1st, it is illegal to pay men more than women in Iceland. The Nordic country is the first in the world to make equal pay the law, following an announcement of the legislation on March 8th, International Women's Day 2017. Under the new rules, companies that employ more than 25 people are obliged to obtain a government certificate showing their pay equality policies, according to multiple reports. Companies will face a fine if they do not comply with this law.
