Maternity bonus lawful

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Abdoulaye and others v Regie Nationale des Usines Renault SA the European Court of Justice has ruled that a maternity bonus to women did not discriminate against men so as to contravene Article 119 of the EC Treaty.

The collective agreement for Renault in France provides that women on maternity leave receive full pay.
