Discrimination – 1Q 2017

(Praha, July 28, 2017) The Czech Trade Inspection Authority monitors possible discriminative conducts in the Czech market. In the first quarter of 2017, it carried out 182 inspections to inspect if sellers comply with the prohibition to discriminate consumers within sale of products or provision of services. Suspicion of certain forms of consumer discrimination was detected in 5 cases which was 2.8% of all inspections. Although we haven’t seen any significant increase of this undesirable conduct during the last two years, the ratio of findings was 1.5% in the same period of the year in 2016. CTIA officers still saw discrimination of foreigners in restaurants and with discrimination of handicapped persons; in one case a blind woman wasn’t allowed to enter a pastry shop because she was accompanied with a guide dog.
