Scheme of paid leave the TvoD represents age-related discrimination judgment of March 20, 2012: the Federal Labor Court of an applicant has been 9 AZR 529/10 – law has seen an age discrimination in the staggering of holidays, as it envisages the TvoD, based on age. As already the first instance, the BAG of reasoning followed an increase of vacation days in the public service from the 30 and 40 being a direct discrimination on grounds of age, which is not justified. A direct connection to the age ultimately constitutes direct discrimination, it is not a problem. The regulations of the AGG in this respect do not generally prohibit discrimination, however, require an appropriate justification for this. The defendant district had argued with an increased recovery need of older workers in this regard. The Erfurt judges considered it already hardly justifiable, that such ever existed, saw but also – even if one – is no legitimate purpose, the It was subsumed under the right manufacturing regulations of the AGG. The only way to eliminate these age discrimination persists, according to the Court, that the level of over 40 by granting one additional day of vacation to fit the lower level. The decision of the 9th Senate is one that brings considerable financial consequences for federal, State and local authorities to again. She has been explicitly only for the transition of the holiday staggering under and over 40, should leave but transferred without problems even on the first stage of the increase under and over 30.
