EU rules marriage benefits also apply to Gays

by FFE EU News Staff

 

 

Whether or not an EU member state allows gays to marry, it must still honour married gay couples’ rights including marriage benefits, said the EU’s highest court.

 

In a ruling on Thursday, the EU Court Justice sided with Frederick Hay, a French bank worker who entered into a civil pact with his male partner, who was denied the extra leave bonuses entitled to married employees. At that time, French law prohibited same sex couples to marry.

 

The Court said that Hay’s situation was a ‘direct discrimination based on sexual orientation.’ The French law and the country’s banks have changed since then. But a spokesperson for the Court said that the ruling is now an EU-wide standard.
