    Arbeiterwohlfahrt der Stadt Berlin eV v Bötel [1992] IRLR 423 ECJ (0 other reports)

In Arbeiterwohlfahrt der Stadt Berlin eV v Bötel (4 June 1992) EOR45A, the European Court of Justice rules that statutory time-off provisions which fail to compensate part-time workers for time spent on industrial relations training outside their normal working hours indirectly discriminate against women and are contrary to Article 119 of the EEC Treaty unless objectively justified by the Member States. The decision is likely to have direct implications for UK discrimination law.
