About this initiative


Although the EU legal framework prescribes equal pay, its effective implementation and enforcement remain an important
challenge. This evaluation will assess the extent to which the provisions of Directive 2006/54/EC implementing the Treaty
provisions on equal pay (Article 157(1-2) TFEU), as strengthened by the 2014 Commission Recommendation on pay transparency, can be deemed relevant, effective, efficient, coherent with other EU policies and of added value, as per the Better Regulation rules.
