European Union Employment. The Court of Justice of the European Union ruled that art 2(1) and (2)(a) and art 6(1) of Council Directive (EC) 2000-78 (establishing a general framework for equal treatment in employment and occupation) should be interpreted as not precluding national legislation, such as that at issue, which excluded the crediting of periods of school education completed by a civil servant before the age of 18 for the purpose of the grant of pension entitlement and the calculation of the amount of his retirement pension, in so far as that legislation was objectively and reasonably justified by a legitimate aim relating to employment policy and labour-market policy and constituted an appropriate and necessary means of achieving that aim.
