Meister v Speech Design Carrier Systems GmbH Case C-415/10 ECJ

Reports relating to this case:

  • Race discrimination: Unsuccessful job applicants have no right to disclosure of information under EU Directives

    Date:
    7 October 2012

    In Meister v Speech Design Carrier Systems GmbH Case C-415/10 ECJ, the ECJ held that EU law does not provide unsuccessful job applicants who believe they have been discriminated against with a right to disclosure of information. However, a refusal to answer a request for information, along with a failure to challenge that the applicant's expertise meets the advertised requirements and a refusal to invite the applicant to interview, are factors that a domestic court can take into account in deciding whether or not to infer discrimination.
