2nd, revised edition

ISBN 978-3-7007-5787-0

This is the second edition of the first ever comprehensive analysis of equal treatment and anti-discrimination legislation applicable in Austria and in the EU. The book describes current anti-discrimination regulations in Austria, including practical examples and supreme court decisions, and is, therefore, practice oriented in every respect.

The Community Law part of the book deals with the history of anti-discrimination legislation in Europe. In particular, it presents a detailed analysis of decisions of the ECJ and its principal legislation. The second part of the book introduces and comments on the current Austrian Equal Treatment Act. The book aims to give practitioners and entrepreneurs an overview of Community and national laws as well as court decisions, in order for them to be able to reasonably respond to the challenges of the new laws and regulations.

A comprehensive collection of sources of Austrian and European law relating to the different anti-discrimination offences completes the book and makes it a 'must have' for anybody who takes an interest in this topic.

In view of increasing globalisation and the related fact that Anglo-American methods are also used increasingly in property valuation, the authors' idea was, in co-operation with the real estate expert Roman Wagner, to write a book that would explain the Anglo-Saxon principles of property valuation to Austrian real estate agents and all those who are interested in the subject.
