The Prohibition of Age Discrimination in Labour Relations
From the 25th of July to the 1st of August 2010, the XVIIIth International Congress of Comparative Law took place in Washington D.C. This book publishes the outcome of the congress concerning “The Prohibition of Age Discrimination in Labour Relations”. The relevance of “age discrimination" as a topic increased significantly over the last decade. The congress in Washington gave the participants an opportunity to present and compare their experiences with age discrimination in employment relationships. The book consists of 23 reports written by national experts, either in English or in French. These reports address the 20 most relevant questions with regard to age discrimination. They deliver extensive insight into the different countries’ situations and their provisions against age discrimination. The book compares inter alia legal regulations, the protected age-groups and procedural aspects. It begins with the General Report written by Prof. Dr. Monika Schlachter, which provides an introduction to the subject and evaluates the results of the national reports.
