The Employment Equality Directive (adopted in 2000) imposed a duty on the EU Member States to provide protection against discrimination on the grounds – among others – of religion or belief in the areas of employment, occupation and vocational training. This study examines the legal issues linked to this protection, including the interpretation of key concepts, and the exceptions provided for in the Directive. Throughout the study, examples of good practice in various Member States have been identified on which the CJEU and the national courts can draw for guidance when required to decide on issues regarding religion or belief discrimination in employment contexts.
