Quest for another public holiday

Arbeitsrecht

Mag. Jakob Widner, ILO-Newsletter vom 6. Juli 2016

In a recent decision with potentially far-reaching consequences, the Court of Appeals for the Vienna Circuit ruled that a peculiar provision in the Act on Rest Periods violates EU law and must therefore be disregarded by the courts. The court of appeals gave leave to appeal to the Supreme Court. If the Supreme Court hears the case and upholds the court of appeal´s decision, Austrian employees may soon celebrate yet another public holiday.
