The Czech Republic is one of the countries with the largest gender pay gap in the EU. On average, women earn a fifth less than men, and the annual difference exceeds one month's earnings. In an effort to combat this discrimination, the Ministry of Labour has launched a project called "22% to equality", in reference to the difference in female and male incomes. The project involves comprehensive research, but also a web payroll calculator or an "equal pay program" for employers.
