To address the gender pay gap across its member states, the EU recently approved the Pay Transparency Directive (2023/970/EU). The Directive introduces reporting requirements and obliges employers to take steps to address pay inequalities, and must be transposed into national legislation by 7 June 2026.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has made business travel increasingly complex, and the end of the Brexit transition period could complicate it further.
