The exclusion by a collective agreement of low-paid, part-time workers from entitlement to an end-of-year bonus provided for by that agreement constituted indirect discrimination based on sex, where that exclusion applied independently of the sex of the worker but actually affected a considerably higher percentage of women than men, rules the ECJ in Krüger v Kreiskrankenhaus Ebersberg.
