Advocate of the Principle of Equality

Current information and instructions are available on the Coronavirus disease COVID-19 website
In addition to providing advice and legal assistance, the Advocate carries out independent research in the area of protection against discrimination, publishes reports and issues recommendations to state authorities, local communities, employers, economic operators and other entities regarding the position of persons with a certain personal circumstance. In addition, it may perform certain inspection tasks regarding the guarantee of the right to protection against discrimination.
In contrast to the work of the Human Rights Ombudsman, the work of the Advocate is not limited only to ensuring protection against possible discriminatory practices in the public sector, but also extends to the private sector, where it may examine the situation and take action as appropriate.
