EU Pay Transparency Directive

Across the EU, the gender pay gap differs widely, however, it has been calculated that on average, working women in the EU earn 13% less per hour than men.

On 15 December 2022, the European Parliament agreed on binding pay-transparency measures to make salaries more transparent in an effort to narrow the gender pay gap across the EU. Parliament and Council are yet to formally approve the agreement.
