Case Law C-173/13 (17/07/2014)

Type: Judgment

Authority: European Authorities: Euopean Union' Court of Justice

Date: 07/17/2014

Subject: The Court affirmed that French rules on certain pension-related advantages granted to civil servants give rise to indirect discrimination on grounds of sex. The unequal treatment, which results from a condition which female civil servants fulfil systematically because of the compulsory nature of maternity leave, is not justified, as the rules in question do not genuinely reflect a concern to attain the legitimate social policy objective relied on by France and have not been pursued in a consistent and systematic manner in the light of that aim.

Parties: Maurice Leone e Blandine Leone

Classification: Equality - Art. 21 Non discrimination - Solidarity - Art. 33 Parental leave - Art. 34 Social security
