The Equal Treatment Directive 2006/54/EC is an Act of the European Union, which implements the principle of equal treatment between men and women in EU labour law.


Since the Treaty of Amsterdam came into force in 1999, new EU laws, or Directives, have been enacted in the area of anti-discrimination. The Equal Treatment Directive 2006/54/EC is a consolidation of previous Directives in this area, notably, the Directive 76/207/EEC, which was amended by Directive 2002/73/EC.
