This report relates to 1 case(s)
Kampelmann v Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe  IRLR 333 ECJ (0 other reports)
Where a member state has incorrectly transposed into national law the obligation of an employer under the EC Written Particulars Directive to briefly specify or describe an employee's work in a notification of the essential aspects of the contract, public sector employees may rely on it against their employers directly before their national courts, holds the European Court of Justice in (1) Kampelmann and others v Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe (2) Stadtwerke Witten GmbH v Schade (3) Haseley v Stadtwerke Altena GmbH  IRLR 333. The state may not implement the obligation in such a way as to allow the employer always to confine the information to be notified to a mere job designation.
