Is it allowed to ban a person from entering a bar because of his or her skin colour?

If a person is banned from entering a bar solely on the basis of his or her skin colour, there is discrimination. Such conduct is unacceptable.

However, if a person is banned from entering the bar because of his or her behaviour or he or she wants to enter the bar, for example, with his or her own drink, then such a ban is allowed. In this case, the reason for the ban is a person’s bad behaviour or the presence of a foreign beverage, not the colour of the skin. On these grounds, anyone with any skin colour would be banned from entering the bar.

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.
