Do you think men and women are paid equally for the same work or work of equal value in the UK?

What do you think of EU and national action to tackle this issue?


Back in November 2017, the European Commission adopted an Action Plan to tackle the gender pay gap.  This plan was the latest in a series of initiatives taken over the years to try to make sure that men and women are paid equally for doing equal work, including a European Directive on equal pay and a recommendation on pay transparency.


One of the actions in the 2017 plan was to take an in-depth look at how these measures have been implemented, to try to find out how they are working in practice and whether more action is needed to improve gender equality and tackle the root causes of the gender pay gap.


So, now the Commission want your views and experiences on how the principle of “equal pay for equal work” is being implemented in practice.


How effective do you think the legislation and other measures have been? Do you think there has been any progress in the last 10 years in the enforcement of equal pay rights for women and men?


Your response will feed into the wider consideration of this issue and help determine whether further action is needed.
