Sex discrimination in relation to part-time and fixed-term work
The application of EU and national law in practice in 33 European countries
This thematic report of the European Commission’s European Network of Legal Experts in the Field of Gender Equality addresses equality issues faced by part-time and fixed-term workers in the 33 countries participating in the Network: the 28 Member States, the EEA countries Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway; and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Turkey. The report provides an analysis and assessment of existing gender equality legislation and case law in relation to part-time and fixed-term work, both at EU and at national level. The implementation of the five relevant EU... Directives (Recast, Statutory Social Security, Goods and Services, Part-Time Work, and Fixed-Term Work) is extensively discussed in the legislative context of EU law, alongside prominent issues such as gender stereotyping, the reconciliation of work and family life, and the gender pay gap.
