Discrimination law does not protect job applicants seeking compensation only

Kratzer v R+V Allgemeine Versicherung AG [2016] IRLR 888 ECJ

age discrimination | equal treatment | recruitment

In this German case, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) has ruled that a person who applies for a job with the sole purpose of making an application for compensation for discrimination is not covered by the Equal Treatment Framework Directive (2000/78/EC) or the Equal Opportunities and Equal Treatment Directive (2006/54/EC) and may be considered as having committed an abuse of rights under EU law.
