The Constitution of Madagascar states that all individuals have a right to a fair remuneration for their work assuring them, as well as their family, an existence in conformity with human dignity.

In accordance with the Labour Code, workers should receive equal pay for work of equal value regardless of their origin, colour, descent, nationality, gender, age, union membership, their views and their status.

Tsy fanavakavahana

In accordance with the Labour Code, an employer cannot discriminate against a person (in any aspect of employment) on grounds of race, religion, national origin, sex, trade union membership, political affiliation and HIV/AIDS status. Discrimination on above grounds is a liable offence.

The Constitution also prohibits discrimination in the following words: "No one may be prejudiced in their work or in their employment for reason of gender, of age, of religion, of opinions, of origins, of belonging to a trade-union or of political convictions" (Art. 28). "The law is the expression of the general will. It is the same for all, whether it protects, it obligates or it punishes. All individuals are equal before the law and enjoy the same fundamental freedoms protected by the law without discrimination founded on gender, the level of instruction, wealth, origin, religious belief or opinion. The law favors the equal access and the participation of women and men in public employment and to the functions in the domain of the political, economical and social life. (Art. 6)
