Equal Treatment Directive of 1976
The old Equal Treatment Directive was created on 9 February 1976 on the implementation of the principle of equal treatment for men and women in access to employment, vocational training and promotion, and working conditions.
It was the subject of the landmark case A. Foster and others v. British Gas plc. It had been previously established that European Union directives can be directly enforceable against the state if they have not been correctly and fully transposed into national law within the time allowed. The judgment in this case established that such direct enforceability applies not only against the state but also against emanations of the state.
