A recent law (law n°2018-771 dated 5 September 2018) has implemented a new obligation for companies of more than 50 employees to publish each year (through their website or by any means as long as their employees are informed of this) specific indicators relating to any potential pay gap or different treatment between men and women which exist within the company in France, and the measures which will be implemented in order to reduce such gap or differences.

This law provides for different types of indicators to identify the pay gap (e.g., differences in pay, pay rises, promotion statistics, etc.) depending on whether companies have more than 1,000 employees, between 251 and 999 employees, and between 50 and 250 employees.
