Unequal treatmentPrint

Discrimination is a situation where a given person or group is treated less favourably than another person in a comparable situation, in particular on the grounds of sex, race, ethnic origin, nationality, religion, denomination, beliefs, age, disability or sexual orientation or other criterion of discriminatory character.

Discrimination is based on a subjective dislike of a particular person or group based on a discriminatory criterion, i.e. on the basis of a characteristic of the person or group characteristic such as sex, religion, nationality, etc. 

Polish law prohibits discrimination on any grounds. According to the Polish Constitution, all persons are equal before the law and nobody may be discriminated against in political, social or economic life for any reason.
