Language of the case: Spanish

Referring court

Juzgado de lo Social No 1 de Granada

Parties to the main proceedings

Applicant: Marta León Medialdea

Defendant: Ayuntamiento de Huétor Vega

Questions referred

1.

Is a worker employed under a non-permanent contract of indefinite duration, as envisaged by the legislation and the case-law, a fixed-term worker within the meaning of the definition set out in Directive 1999/70/EC? (1)

2.

Is it compatible with EU law for the national court to interpret and apply national law in such a way that, as regards fixed-term employment contracts in the public sector entered into in circumvention of the law which are transformed into non-permanent contracts of indefinite duration, the public authorities may fill or eliminate the posts held by persons employed under such contracts unilaterally, without paying any compensation to the worker, where the legislation does not lay down other measures to limit the misuse of temporary contracts?

3.

Would the same conduct by the public authority be compatible with EU law if, in filling or eliminating the post, the worker concerned was paid the compensation provided for in the event of termination of temporary contracts entered into lawfully?

4.

Would the same conduct by the public authority be compatible with EU law if, in order to fill or eliminate the post, it was required to have recourse to the procedures and grounds provided for in the event of dismissal for objective reasons and to pay the same compensation?
