Annual Certification Fee

Fair Pay Workplace certified companies pay an annual fee to maintain their certification. That cost varies based on your number of employees, the state of your pay data, and other factors, but we work with organizations of all sizes to ensure that certification can fit your budget.

That fee allows us to meet our core costs and serve you in a few key ways:

Certification Resources: Most of the annual fee covers the labor of our data scientists and legal experts who conduct the analysis.

Communications Support: We also offer PR support to certified organizations, to help you tell your pay equity story. A percentage of the fee goes toward offering that guidance and maintaining resources like our brand assets and website.

Community and Movement Building: When awareness of pay equity increases, the value of certification increases with it. We use our fee to produce articles, reports, white papers, and events to sustain the movement toward fairness at work for everyone.
