Parakar’s Commitment to Gender Equality in the Workplace
Parakar is committed to ensuring compliance with local regulations, particularly those related to gender equality in the workplace. In Spain, labour laws mandate that companies adopt measures to prevent discrimination and ensure equal treatment and opportunities for all employees. To meet these requirements, Parakar has taken steps to implement a professional equality plan in collaboration with the Union.
Spain has implemented several measures to promote gender equality in the workplace, including the Equality Plan (Plan de Igualdad). An Equality Plan is a set of measures and actions that companies must adopt to ensure equal treatment and opportunities for men and women in the workplace.
According to the Spanish Law on Gender Equality, companies with 50 or more employees are required to implement an Equality Plan. This plan should cover areas such as recruitment, promotion, training, salaries, and work-life balance.
The Equality Plan should be developed in consultation with workers’ representatives and must be approved by the company’s management. Once approved, the plan must be implemented and monitored to ensure compliance.
Companies that fail to comply with the requirement to implement an Equality Plan may be fined, and workers who suffer discrimination may file a complaint with the labour authorities.
In addition to promoting gender equality in the workplace, the Equality Plan can also benefit companies by improving their reputation, increasing employee satisfaction and productivity, and reducing the risk of legal claims related to discrimination.
Overall, besides staying compliant with the local labour law, the Equality Plan is an important tool for promoting gender equality in the workplace and ensuring that companies are doing their part to create a more equal and inclusive society.
Parakar emphasizes the importance of equal remuneration for equal positions, especially between men and women. Having the Equality Plan set is an important step towards creating a more inclusive and equitable workplace, and Parakar is committed to taking action to achieve this goal!
