Page: 184 Chart Number: 8/42 Chart Title: Workers: rights

In spring 2011, Regulation 1612/68/EEC was replaced by Regulation 492/2011/EU on freedom of movement for workers within the Union (OJ 2011 L 141/12). The new Regulation is simply a codification (i.e. a restatement) of the old one, as it results after numerous amendments, including in particular from the changes brought about by Directive 2004/38/EC (though this latter Directive, Arts. 10 and 11 of Regulation 1612/68/EEC on family rights were abolished), plus a certain renumbering. Hence, the box at the left hand side in the 3rd row must read:

Non-discrimination/equal treatment on grounds of nationality

Art. 45(1) and (2) TFEU, Arts. 7-10 _ of Regulation 492/2011/EU: right to equal treatment in relation to various areas; e.g.:
• Employment;
• Remuneration and other conditions;
• Dismissal (including reinstatement and reemployment);
• Social advantages;
• Tax advantages;
• Access to vocational schools and training centres;
• Membership of trade unions and the resultant rights;
• Housing, including property ownership;
• Access to educational, apprenticeship and vocational training for children.
