Ruling of the Court of Justice of the EU in the case Leone and Leone (C-173/13) on Social policy
On 17 July 2014, the Court of Justice of the EU delivered its ruling in case C-173/13 Leone and Leone on social policy.
According to the Court, the unequal treatment, which results from a condition which female civil servants fulfil systematically because of the compulsory nature of maternity leave, is not justified, as the rules in question do not genuinely reflect a concern to attain the legitimate social policy objective relied on by France and have not been pursued in a consistent and systematic manner in the light of that aim.
