20-11-2014

The 2000 Employment Equality Directive has introduced numerous improvements into employment legislation. However, a report on the implementation of this directive in Member States has been published this year and it uncovers several problematic areas that will need to be worked on in the future. These include obstacles in access to justice, inadequate sanctions for perpetrators, lack of awareness of rights under the new law, underreporting, lack of equality data and so on.
