In 2010 - from July 25th to August 1st - the XVIIIth International Congress of Comparative Law took place in Washington D.C. This book contains the outcome of the Congress concerning "The Prohibition of Age Discrimination in Labour Relations." The relevance of age discrimination as a topic increased significantly over the last decade, and the Congress gave the participants an opportunity to present and compare their experiences with age discrimination in employment relationships.
The book consists of 23 reports - written in English and French - by national experts. These reports address the most relevant questions with regard to age discrimination. They deliver extensive insight into the different countries' situations and their provisions against age discrimination. The book compares inter alia legal regulations, the protected age-groups, and procedural aspects. It begins with the General Report, which provides an introduction to the subject and evaluates the results of the national reports.
