Part-time workers: On demand contracts not discriminatory
This report relates to 1 case(s)
Wippel v Peek & Cloppenburg GmbH & Co KG  IRLR 211 ECJ (0 other reports)
In Wippel v Peek & Cloppenburg GmbH & Co. KG, the European Court of Justice holds:
- A worker working pursuant to a contract under which hours of work are dependent on the amount of work available and are determined only on a case-by-case basis by agreement between the employer and worker, is within the scope of the Equal Treatment Directive (76/207/EC). Such a contract also falls within the scope of the European Framework Directive 97/81/EC on part-time work, which provides that part-time workers shall not be treated less favourably than comparable full-time workers, unless the difference in treatment can be objectively justified.
