Closing the Gap

Posted on March 10, 2017 at 04:36 PM

The Labour Party has published legislation that aims to drive efforts towards closing the gender pay gap in Ireland. 

The Gender Pay Gap Information Bill 2017 requires medium to large-sized companies to regularly publish wage transparency surveys that would highlight any difference in pay between their male and female employees.


As part of International Women’s Week, the Labour Party has also published ‘ Closing the Gap ’, a new policy document to tackle gender inequality in the workplace.

We understands that there is a range of factors, including the issue of unconscious bias, which contributes to gender inequality in the workplace.

Throughout our new policy paper we outline that while there is no one-size-fits-all solution,steps can be taken to pave the way for full gender equality in the workplace. This must include pay, supporting women into work and tackling the glass ceiling effect.
