Grounds of Discrimination

Equal Opportunities Ombudsperson investigates residents’ complaints on these grounds of discrimination:

  • gender
  • race
  • nationality
  • language
  • origin
  • social status* (see picture below for definition)
  • belief
  • convictions or views
  • age
  • sexual orientation
  • disability
  • ethnic origin
  • religion

Discrimination can be identified when there is a match between the grounds of forbidden discrimination of a person, as established in the legal acts, and the domain where discrimination is illegal (see picture below).
