Review of Recent Case Law Relevant to Ireland - The Data Retention Directive and Employment Equality Issues

Posted in : Supplementary Case Law Articles ROI on 11 April 2014 Issues covered:

We have three cases below in today's article.

The first is a CJEU case that includes a referral from the Irish High Court in relation to the blanket retention of details involving telecommunications throughout Ireland under the Data Retention Directive. The CJEU has ruled that the EU legislature acted disproportionately and the Directive is invalid.

The second and third cases involve employment equality issues. The first of those refers to the failure to promote a senior lecturer to a professor position. Our final case involves the dismissal of a truck driver, who claimed the dismissal was discriminatory on grounds of disability.
