Supreme Court rules on scope of German minimum wage legislation
Mag. Jakob Widner, ILO-Newsletter vom 8. Februar 2017

In a novel decision the Supreme Court for the first time ruled on the thin line between the freedoms to provide services afforded under the fundamental treaties of the European Union and legislation by its member states to contain social dumping, which has become a major unintended side effect of labour migration.

National legislation on social dumping and minimum wages can be validly extended to employers of other member states when they perform their services abroad, but this extension is limited where unnecessary and inadequate to accomplish the goals of minimum wage regulations.

While the act primarily addresses persons offering goods or services in such buildings, it also has implications for persons publicly offering real estate. In addition, the act has a significant impact on existing and new lease agreements.

Supreme Court sets aside arbitral award for defective reasoning
Dr. Nikolaus Pitkowitz, ILO Newsletter vom 19.1.2017

In a recent decision, the Supreme Court considered if and under what circumstances defective reasoning of an arbitral award may lead to its annulment under the Arbitration Law. In a deviation from previous case law and views expressed by the majority of Austrian legal scholars, the court held that the requirement of sound reasoning is a fundamental principle of the Austrian legal system, and thus that an arbitrator´s failure to comply with this constitutes a violation of procedural public policy.
