This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Kachelmann v Bankhaus Hermann Lampe KG the European Court of Justice has ruled that it is not contrary to the EC Equal Treatment Directive for a redundancy selection process not to compare part-time workers with full-time workers.

Ms Kachelmann was employed on a part-time basis, working 30 hours per week as a bank manager in Hamburg.
