Age Discrimination in Italy
AbstractThe Framework Directive on Equal Treatment in Employment and Occupation (2000/78/EC) included age as one of its prohibited grounds of discrimination. Member States were required to transpose this Directive by December 2003. In Italy age discrimination was explicitly regulated by means of Legislative Decree no. 216, 9 July 2003. The Decree introduced the new specific prohibition of discrimination, defining its application, exceptions and remedies. The purpose of this paper is to explore, in a contextual way, the implementation of the age aspects of the Framework Directive in Italy taking into account how age discrimination express itself in the Italian labour market. .
