Equal treatment of women and men in employment: An analysis of the cypriot and the Greek legal frameworks

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The principle of equal treatment between women and men holds a major importance in Labour Law and aims to ensure equal opportunities and conditions of employment regardless of gender. The main part of the study focuses on the protective measures and the legal protection in the Cypriot and Greek legal order. Statistical data reveals that gender equality at work has not actually been achieved in the two countries. A deeper analysis sug gests that there is a pathogenesis in the labour markets that needs to be overcome. Balancing family and professional life are crucial in combating social stereotypes, occupational segregation, as well as the glass ceiling effect, in order to achieve substantial gender equality in employment life.
