The employment rate of women in Slovenia is higher than the EU 15 average, and their overall labour market position seems relatively favourable, while equal opportunities legislation has recently been strengthened. However, according to the Union of Free Trade Unions of Slovenia (ZSSS) and the Equal Opportunities Office (UEM), in practice, women still face discrimination at work and the law is not always implemented. For example, it is reported that employers often treat women in a discriminatory way because they have children or are pregnant. There is also currently a lack of data on discrimination and other equality-related issues. This article looks at the situation in summer 2004.
