Pay Transparency and Equal Pay: European landscape

Lack of pay transparency has been identified as a major hurdle in closing the EU’s gender pay gap. With women reported to earn on average 13% less than men in 2020, the EU took a bold step forward by introducing the EU Pay Transparency Directive. In an effort to tackle pay discrimination and increase pay transparency, the Directive creates new and far-reaching information and reporting obligations for employers. The Directive came into force in June 2023 and Member States will have three years to transpose it into national law.

Explore our cross-border guide analysing the degree of change that will be required to comply with the Directive’s obligations across the key European jurisdictions.
