With its ruling on 22.11.2016, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) has referred a request for preliminary ruling in the case, C-566/15 (the “TUI-Case”), to the Grand Chamber. The Court has set the date for oral arguments to January 24th, 2017. BRANDHOFF OBERMÜLLER PARTNER represents the applicant. In this case, the ECJ must decide whether German corporate co-determination rules violate the European non-discrimination principle and the free-movement of workers by not including employees working outside of Germany in the class of persons entitled to participate in the election of supervisory boards in German corporations.
