The workplace equality legislation (Organic Law 3/2007 and Royal Decree-Law 6/2019) was recently implemented in Decree 901 and Decree 902 passed in 2020. Both decrees attempt to finalize the legislative measures adopted to advance towards greater gender equality in employer-employee relations. And that advance is sought to be achieved through profuse, complex legislation not without ambiguities and interpretation difficulties.
María José Ramo, partner of the Labor and Employment Department of Garrigues, explains what is new in relation to equality plans and the recent obligations concerning pay equality at companies. In order to do that, María José uses her extensive experience in advising on the preparation of numerous equality plans and her first-hand knowledge of the difficulties that often arise in these negotiations.
