Voß v Land Berlin - part-timers must receive equal pay to full-timers for overtime worked - ECJ Case C-300/06 on 6.12.07

A civil servant in Germany is legally obliged to work, without remuneration, beyond normal hours if the job requires it. Extra pay is only given for such work once the extra hours amount to 5 more than normal working hours.

Ms Voß worked part-time as a teacher.

She claimed that she was not receiving equal pay compared to male teachers working the same extra hours.
