Refusal by the Member State to grant unemployment benefit to a citizen of another Member State. Discrimination based on citizenship.
Regulation (EEC) n. 1612/68 of the Council of 15 October 1968 on the free movement of workers within the Community.
1. A citizen of a Member State who enters the territory of another Member State, in which he had previously worked, and who claims compensation for job seekers, is not a worker within the meaning of Title II of Regulation n. 1612/68. Therefore, this citizen is in a situation comparable to those looking for a job as their first job, and who enjoys the principle of equal treatment only for access to work.
2. A national of a Member State who enters the territory of another Member State, in which he had previously worked, has no right of residence on the basis of Directive 68/360. In fact, this right is recognized to citizens of a Member State who are already working, therefore, jobseekers are excluded.
