Description Although discrimination due to sex is currently prohibited and condemned in various areas of human activity, and there is also a prohibition of non-gender discrimination in the labor law, the gender pay gap persists. The article deals with the analysis of this difference based on the gender pay gap approach, broken down by region, type of occupation and education attained. The results suggest that in the Czech Republic there has long been a difference in the wages of men and women, which increases over time in absolute terms, but decreases in relative terms. The analysis broken down into regions and types of occupations points to differences but does not indicate systematic discrimination. On the other hand, the analysis according to education attained points to a rising wage gap and an increase in the relative gender pay gap, i.e., to potential discrimination against women in connection with education attained.
