The Court ruled employers who test for HIV without consent are violating human rights. The case was brought by an individual who was an asymptomatic carrier of the virus at the time of employment. The Luxembourg Court of Justice has gone one stage further, ruling that indirect tests which might indicate the presence of the virus are also illegal without the patient's consent.
