Opinion of the Court of Justice of the EU in the case Kaltoft (C-354/13) on social policy

406 views

On 17 July 2014, the Court of Justice of the EU delivered its opinion in the case C-354/13 Kaltoft concerning social policy. According to the Court, EU law does not include a general principle prohibiting employers from discriminating on grounds of obesity in the labour market. Severe obesity can be a disability covered by the protection provided in Council Directive 2000/78/EC of 27 November 2000 establishing a general framework for equal treatment in employment and occupation if it, in interaction with various barriers, hinders full and effective participation of the person concerned in professional life on an equal basis with other workers. It is for the national court to determine if this is the case with respect to the plaintiff in the main proceedings.
