The Austrian system of remuneration and advancement of State officials and contractual public servants remains contrary to the prohibition of discrimination on grounds of age. As long as the Austrian legislature fails to take measures to re-establish equal treatment with regard to taking into consideration professional experience acquired before the age of 18, persons treated unfavourably by the old system are entitled to obtain the same advantages as their colleagues who are treated favourably by that system and in particular the payment of compensation.
