Discrimination on the ‘religion ground’ happens where there is less favourable treatment of one person compared to another person because one has a different religious belief, background or outlook from the other, or that one has a religious belief, background or outlook and the other has not.

Membership clubs – a sports club for example – are one of the services covered by the Equal Status Acts and, as a general rule, cannot discriminate on any of the nine specified grounds (Age, Civil Status, Disability, Family Status, Gender, Membership of the Traveller Community, Race, Religion, Sexual Orientation) under the Equal Status Acts.

Ach tá roinnt díolúintí tábhachtacha ann mar sin féin.

Cuir gearán faoi bhráid an Choimisiúin um Chaidreamh san Áit Oibre (WRC)

Is é an Coimisiún um Chaidreamh san Áit Oibre (WRC) an príomhchomhlacht a éisteann le gearáin agus a chinneann cúiteamh de bharr idirdhealú faoi dhlíthe comhionannais na hÉireann. Ní bhíonn aon táille ar chás a thabhairt os comhair an Choimisiúin agus is féidir gearáin a dhéanamh ar líne.

Tá ról faoi leith againne, Coimisiún na hÉireann um Chearta an Duine agus Comhionannas, troid in aghaidh an idirdhealaithe agus an comhionannas agus cearta an duine a chur chun cinn in Éirinn. Is féidir linn eolas a thabhairt duit faoi do chearta, agus i gcásanna teoranta ar leith is féidir linn cúnamh dlí a thabhairt duit. Ach tabhair faoi deara nach cúirt muid agus nach gcinnimid éilimh idirdhealaithe.
