Gleichbehandlungsrichtlinien der EU--Umsetzung im deutschen Arbeitsrecht

Translated title of the contribution: The EU Equal Treatment Directives - implementation in German labour law

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article in one of the leading German journals on labour law analyses the shortcomings of German labour law at the time (2004) in relation to the EU non-discrimination directives. It states that the reluctance to legislate against race, sex and disability discrimination must be overcome, if the demands of the directives are to be fulfilled. It also explains how those forms of discrimination could already be addressed by interpreting German labour law in line with those directives and constitutional requirements. Only in 2006 was the relevant legislation finally passed (three years later than required).
