The Discrimination Act protects you against discrimination at work, at school, at university or college, and at the shops, and when you buy or rent a home. It also protects you in other important areas of society, such as the healthcare and social services and the social insurance system.
If you have been discriminated against, you can report this to the Equality Ombudsman (DO). It costs nothing to do so.
You can file a complaint with the Ombudsman if you feel you have been discriminated against on grounds of sex, transgender identity or expression, ethnicity, religion or other belief, disability, sexual orientation or age. You can also report the matter if an employer has treated you unfairly in connection with your parental leave.
