The Commission proposed in March 2021 new pay transparency measures, such as pay information for job seekers, a right to know the pay levels for workers doing the same work, as well as gender pay gap reporting obligations for big companies. The proposal aims to strengthen the tools for workers to claim their rights and facilitate access to justice.

Employees will also have the right to compensation for discrimination in pay.

The EU and the Member States need to take policy action that provides solutions to horizontal and vertical labour market segregation, gender stereotypes and the inadequate provision of child-care and long-term care.
