European Union – Employment. The Court of Justice of the European Union gave a preliminary ruling, deciding that art 8 of Directive (EC) 2008/94 should be interpreted as meaning that it did not require that, in the event of employer insolvency, money withheld from a former employee's salary converted into pension contributions, which that employer should have paid into a pension fund on behalf of that employee, be excluded from the scope of insolvency proceedings.
