This report relates to 1 case(s)
Barber v Guardian Royal Exchange Assurance Group  IRLR 240 ECJ (2 other reports)
In Barber v Guardian Royal Exchange Assurance Group (17 May 1990) EOR32A, the European Court of Justice takes the historic decision that a pension paid under a contracted-out occupational scheme falls within the scope of the directly enforceable prohibition against sex discrimination in Article 119 of the EEC Treaty. Discrimination on grounds of sex by employers in setting pensionable ages and in benefits provided is unlawful from the date of the Court's decision.
