 Directive 2000/78/EC

I. Description

Discrimination based on religion or belief, disability, age or sexual orientation may undermine the achievement of the objectives of the EC Treaty,  in particular the attainment of a high level of employment and social protection, raising the standard of living and the quality of life, economic and  social cohesion and solidarity, and the free movement of persons.

To this end, any direct or indirect discrimination based on religion or belief, disability, age or sexual orientation as regards the areas covered by  this Directive should be prohibited throughout the Community. This prohibition of discrimination should also apply to nationals of third countries but does  not cover differences of treatment based on nationality and is without prejudice to provisions governing the entry and residence of third-country nationals and their access to employment and occupation.
