Age Discrimination in the light of CJEU case law


Declan O’Dempsey provides an up-to-date overview of the Court of Justice’s evolving body of case law on age discrimination in the employment field in the latest issue of the European Equality Law Review.  This publication covers the European Economic Area and European Free Trade Association (EFTA). It provides an overview of the latest legislative, policy, and case-law developments in the fields of non-discrimination and gender equality in the 35 countries that participate in the European Equality Law Network, the European network of legal experts in gender equality and non-discrimination.

In this issue Christopher McCrudden (Professor of Human Rights and Equality Law at Queen’s University Belfast and visiting professor at Oxford University) examine the consequences and legal implications of the recent landmark CHEZ decision of the CJEU:  has the Court redefined the concepts of direct and indirect discrimination by association? Kevät Nousiainen (Professor of Comparative Law and Legal Theory at the University of Turku, Finland) discusses the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (the Istanbul Convention) and the EU, with a focus on converging standards on violence against women and Alexandra Timmer (Assistant Professor at the Netherlands Institute of Human Rights (SIM)) examines gender stereotyping in the case law of the Court of Justice of the EU.
