Reference for a preliminary ruling — Social policy — Directive 1999/70/EC — Framework agreement on fixed-term work concluded by ETUC, UNICE and CEEP — Clause 4 — Principle of non-discrimination — Definition of ‘employment conditions’ — Comparability of situations — Justification — Definition of ‘objective grounds’ — Compensation in the event of termination of an employment contract of indefinite duration on objective grounds — No compensation on expiry of a fixed-term ‘interinidad’ contract. HELD that it was not discriminatory if a fixed-term worker was not entitled to claim payment from his employer as compensation for the expiry of his employment contract, even though a worker whose permanent employment contract was terminated on dismissal by the employer on objective grounds was so entitled.
