Abstract

Partiendo de la base de la tradicional discriminación que existe en el mundo laboral respecto de la trabajadora que es madre o va a serlo, así como de la dificultad que atraviesan muchos padres para poder conciliar su vida familiar y su vida profesional, el artículo sistematiza, analiza e interpreta la jurisprudencia –muchas veces pionera- del Tribunal de Justicia de las Comunidades Europeas en esta materia, poniendo de relieve el hecho de que, a través de sus sentencias, este Tribunal ha apoyado –e incluso iniciado, en muchos casos- los pasos de la Unión Europea en este ámbito de la política social. Traditionally, there has been discrimination in the labour market against pregnant women and mothers. There is also discrimination against parents who wish to reconcile work and family life. Taking all this into account, the article systematizes, analyzes and interprets the pioneer case-law of the Court of Justice of the European Communities in this field. The article puts an accent on the fact that, through this case-law, the Court of Justice has given its support –and has even initiated- the EU steps in the field of its social policy.
