Discrimination in the workplace caused by people attributing characteristics to others on the basis of their national, ethnic, cultural or religious origin is a reality.

Racial discrimination is particularly prevalent in the world of work, as surveys and the number of cases dealt with by advice centres have shown. Individuals with a migrant background are more likely to find themselves unemployed or stuck in low-wage jobs.

Discrimination can be tackled through concrete measures.
