Austria -Case of gender discrimination won -February 21, 2013

The Chamber of Labour has won a case over gender discrimination. A woman working as a HR-manager earned a € 1000 less than her male colleague. After her complaint her salaries were equalized but shortly after the man received a pay increase. As the company refused to pay her the margin the woman handed in her notice. She then contacted the equal treatment consulting of the AK Upper Austria that won her case.
