In its Article 1, the Law on Protection against Discrimination stipulates the purpose of the Law, which is protection of each individual against discrimination regardless of gender, nationality, race or ethnic origin, language, religion or belief, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity and sexual expression, social status, financial status, education or any other personal circumstance. Personal circumstances which may form the basis for discrimination are, in addition to the above-mentioned, also pregnancy, parenthood, health status, skin colour, etc.

The Law provides protection against discrimination due to different personal circumstances in areas of social life, in realizing the human rights and fundamental freedoms, in enforcing rights and liabilities and in other legal relationships on political, economic, social, cultural, civil or any other field.

Anyone who believes that they have experienced discrimination can submit a request to address the discrimination with the Advocate of the Principle of Equality HERE (currently only in Slovenian).
