Two important subfields of social law – Exercise 3

Page: 104 Chapter: Part 3, B. III. 3.

Suggested solution:

This exercise case concerns the same directive as in the previous case, i.e. Directive 2000/78/EC, which does not cover the access to services. Under possible future secondary law, the measure in question would amount to prima facie indirect discrimination on grounds of disability: it concerns an apparently neutral measure with a disparate effect on people with disabilities. Whilst we have no information on objective justification, it seems difficult to imagine such justification in relation to people with a disability (in other words: the rule should exempt people with a disability).
