Finnish government withdraws legislative plans to increase pay transparency

The Finnish government has abandoned plans to reform equality laws with the goal of reducing the gender pay gap in Finland, according to a statement released on Monday.

The government said the ruling parties had not reached an agreement over how to strengthen pay transparency with legislation, as they vowed to do in a program published after Prime Minister Sanna Marin took the reins in late 2019.
