Casteels v British Airways plc – WLR Daily

Posted March 14th, 2011 in EC law, freedom of movement, law reports, pensions, social security by sally
“Article 48FEU of the FEU Treaty, concerning the adoption of measures in the field of social security, could not be relied on by an individual against his private sector employer in a dispute before a national court. In the context of the mandatory application of a collective labour agreement, article 45FEU of the FEU Treaty precluded the non-inclusion of years of service completed by a worker for the same employer in different member states in the calculation of the period for the acquisition of definitive entitlements to supplementary pension benefits.”
