Every person is protected from discrimination on grounds of race, ethnic origin, gender, disability, religion, belief or philosophy of life, age, or sexual orientation. Discrimination means treating one person worse than another person due to, for instance a disability they have or their origin. This protection is based on Germany’s General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). It prohibits discrimination mainly in the world of work and daily affairs, such as going to a discotheque or renting housing.
