New EU directive: pay transparency under the spotlight
The principle of equal pay for equal work has been around a long time, but lack of pay transparency has been identified by the European Commission as one of the key obstacles to its enforcement. Pay transparency facilitates workers to detect and prove possible gender discrimination. It also raises awareness and stimulates debate around the reasons for structural gender pay differences.
The new EU Directive on Pay Transparency contains significant measures intended to address the root causes of the gender pay gap and economic empowerment of women. It will impose substantial new requirements on employers. In this Publication, we take a look at the main upcoming developments.
