HOTREC Position Paper on ‘Pay Transparency Directive’


HOTREC takes note of the Commission proposal for a Directive on “Strengthen 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” – (2021/0050 (COD)).

HOTREC fully supports the right to equal pay between women and men for equal work or work of equal value, as stated in the Treaties, EU legislation and different measures at national level.

Nevertheless, HOTREC considers that binding legislation will not address the root causes of the gender pay gap as explained extensively in the different consultations sent to the European Commission, as well as on different hearings.
