Sex discrimination: Lack of comparability between part-time and full-time workers did not breach Equal Treatment Directive

This report relates to 1 case(s)

Interpreting a national rule in such a way as to prevent comparisons between part-time and full-time workers during a selection process for redundancy did not contravene the Equal Treatment Directive, rules the European Court of Justice in Kachelmann v Bankhaus Hermann Lampe KG. Such an interpretation could result in indirect discrimination because part-time workers in general have less chance of finding another comparable job when redundancies are being made.
