Inadmissibility decision concerning Italy

Human Rights building

The Court declared the applications in the case of Morabito and Others v. Italy inadmissible.

The case concerned doctors who had attended specialisation courses between 1982 and 1991; they complained of the Italian authorities’ delayed transposition of an EU Directive into national law, and alleged, more specifically, that they had not received the “appropriate remuneration” that the member States of the European Union had been required to pay under the Directive.

The Court found that the contested difference in economic treatment had been a direct consequence of the difference in the number of hours worked per year by the applicants compared to the other doctors concerned. This case follows on from the Ruggeri and Others v. Italy decision concerning doctors who attended specialisation courses after 1991.
