Kurzbeschreibung

The exchange of good practices organised in Germany on 5th-6th of December 2011 discussed ways of reducing the gender pay gap. Germany and Austria presented their good practices in the field. In Austria women earn on average a quarter less than men. An amendment of the Equal Treatment Act shall help to improve the situation. It contains a gradual plan for the implementation of the obligation imposed on companies over a certain size to draw up staff income reports. This is complemented by compulsory information on pay conditions in all job advertisement and the transfer of more competencies to the Ombud in dealing with pay discrimination issues. These provisions aim at creating more pay transparency.
