Tasks of the anti-discrimination office

The tasks of the anti-discrimination office in particular are:

  • Supporting discriminated persons, particularly by offering advice that is free of charge, confidential and anonymous

  • Offering counseling and information on the legal possibilities based on the Upper Austrian anti-discrimination law

  • Giving information on measures taken to avoid discrimination as well as provisions on anti-discrimination that have already come into force

  • Submission of recommendations in connection with the prohibition of discrimination

  • Monitoring the implementation of the UN-Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (supported by the Oö. Monitoringausschuss)

  • Assessing and proposing draft bills and regulations

  • Networking with correspondent NGOs

The anti-discrimination office does not act on behalf of their clients in court, but is open to refer you to organisations who offer that kind of support and service.
