Can a person be dismissed for his or her skin colour?

If a person is dismissed solely on the basis of his or her skin colour, this is discrimination. Such activity is unacceptable.

If, however, a person is dismissed for any other reason (such as non-performance of duties or absence from work), there is no discrimination. In this case, the reason for dismissal is due to another reason (such as absence from work) and not to a person’s skin colour.  For these reasons (such as absence from work) a person with any skin colour would be dismissed.

If you did not find an answer to your concern, you may contact the Estonian Commissioner for Gender Equality and Equal Treatment in a free format by sending an email to avaldus@volinik.ee. When contacting the Commissioner, the identity of the person shall not be disclosed and, upon request, anonymity shall be guaranteed. You can also contact both the labour dispute committee and the Chancellor of Justice for conciliation procedure.
