PAY TRANSPARENCY DIRECTIVE
3 December 2023
Directive (EU) 2023/970 of the European Parliament and of the Council on strengthening the application of the principle of equal pay for equal work or work of equal value between men and women through pay transparency and enforcement mechanisms, also known as the Pay Transparency Directive (the "Directive"), came into force on 6 June 2023. The Directive introduces far-reaching measures aimed at reducing the gender pay gap, in particular by increasing the transparency of information on pay and making it easier for workers to pursue equal pay claims.
