Abstract: The author deals in the paper with non-discrimination legislation in the European Union law and selected case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights, with respect to the prohibition of sexual orientation discrimination. The overall protection framework for combating discrimination in employment and occupation on the grounds of religion or belief, disability, age or sexual orientation in the European Union law are Directive 2000/78/EC of November 27th, 2000, establishing a general framework for equal treatment in employment and occupation, and Article 14 of Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. The author focuses on the initial decisions of the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights which have formed the doctrine of non-discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation in the European law, especially on judgments Dudgeon v. United Kingdom and Salgueiro da Silva Mouta v. Portugal.
