Welcome to the Consultation Exercise on the European Commission’s proposal for a Council Directive establishing a general framework for equal treatment in employment and occupation. The proposal would outlaw discrimination at work or in training on grounds of disability, religion or belief, age and sexual orientation. It is currently being negotiated by the Member States of the European Community and may be scheduled for a decision by their Ministers in mid October.
