The 2012 ENAR Shadow Report aims to describe and assess the situation in the Czech Republic with regards to racism and discrimination in employment. The report covers the period from March 2012 to March 2013 and includes a combination of official, unofficial, academic and experimental data. Due to the lack of reliable data on the incidents of racism and discrimination in employment, the report uses input from non-governmental organizations, legal practitioners and the media.
The groups that are particularly relevant to this report are Roma and migrants from third countries. The report includes an assessment of their position in the Czech labour market, and the impact of the economic crisis on their employment. It elaborates on the national legal framework of discrimination in employment and includes a brief assessment of its compliance with the standards of the EU Employment Directive.
