After consulting the social partners on issues of equal pay and gender violence at work, the government has outlined fifteen corrective measures. Five concern the fight against gender-based and sexual violence, ten relate to equal pay. The Ministry of Labor is considering how to establish a common methodology for accounting for pay gaps between women and men. In particular, it has considered to test a software integrated in the payroll software, in order to account for these differences in remuneration. If gaps persist, the company should devote a wage catch-up envelope to women. The catch-up envelope would be negotiated as part of the negotiations on professional equality and quality of life at work.
The subject is under study. Legislative developments are expected this summer.
