Hungarian Court Punishes Employment Discrimination

On May 10, 2004, the Pest Central District Court found that Teremekmix Ltd., a private com-pany, had discriminated against Mr Jozsef Rádics, a Romani man, on racial grounds. In 1999,Teremekmix Ltd. refused to employ Mr Rádics as a leaflet distributor, stating that the position had been filled three weeks after his application was reg-istered. The Budapest-based Legal Defence Bureau for National and Ethnic Minorities (NEKI) provided legal assistance in the case with fi-nancial support from the ERRC. Teremekmix Ltd. had reportedly ar-gued it had a "discretional right" in choosing whom it wanted to hire.Teremekmix Ltd.decided not to appeal. (ERRC)
