Gender Discrimination in the Workplace

Gender Pay Gap

The latest figures from the EU Commission show that the Gender Pay Gap in Ireland is 13.9% – in other words, women in Ireland are paid almost 14% less than men.

Europeans were asked about the most important aspects which an employer takes into account when recruiting a man or a woman. It is interesting to note that the criteria highlighted differ radically depending on whether the recruitment concerns a man or a woman.

  • The three most frequently mentioned criteria in the case of the recruitment of a woman are: whether she has children (49%), flexibility in terms of working hours (35%) and her appearance (33%).
  • For the recruitment of a man, the top three criteria are professional experience (40%), the level of his qualifications (38%) and the ability to be mobile (31%).
