Discrimination – 3Q of 2016

(Continuous report of 3rd quarter of 2016)

(Prague, December 14, 2016) Discriminative treatment of an individual or a group within sale or offer of services is an illegal conduct carried out by vendors who allow such behaviour towards consumes. In the 3rd quarter of 2016, CTIA inspections proved decrease concerning the number of findings of discriminative conducts when only in 1 case a foreigner was discriminated in an alimentation facility. This was fewer by two cases when compared with the 2nd quarter of 2016. More significant were the cases when foreign restaurant guests were billed an extra “service fee”. “I am pleased that in the 3rd quarter fewer cases of discriminative conducts were detected within the inspections. However it is still necessary to pay attention to the issue in order to eliminate cases of consumer discrimination in the future,” said Mojmír Bezecný, the Director General of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority.
