Chapter Summary

Austrian law in the area of equal treatment for women and men have been in force for 30 years. This chapter outlines the development of the legislation against the background of the major international obligations. The International Labour Organisation (ILO) adopts Convention 100 concerning equal remuneration for men and women workers for work of equal value. Convention 111 obliges the members to eliminate all forms of discrimination on grounds of race, colour, gender, religion, political opinion, nationality or social origin, in employment or occupation. The 1957 Treaties establishing the European Economic Community (EEC) included the principle of 'equal pay for equal work' (Article 119 EEC Treaty). A European Union (EU) network of experts exists for gender law and there is a network of independent experts concerning the implementation of anti-discrimination law in the member states.
