Pregnancy seen as temporary incapacity

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Habermann-Beltermann v Arbeiterwohlfahrt, Bezirksverband Ndb/Opf eV (5 May 1994) EOR56B, the European Court of Justice holds that termination of a contract without a fixed term on account of a woman's pregnancy cannot be justified on the ground that a statutory prohibition, imposed because of pregnancy, temporarily prevents the employee from performing night work.
