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.

Background[edit]

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.
