DescriptionThere is no anti-discrimination law on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. Theoretically there is a guarantee of protection against discriminatory practices based on any ground in the Constitution and the Human Rights Law (No. 39/1999). Similarly, the Labor Law (No. 13/2003) prohibits discrimination in employment. However, this is little known in LGBT communities, and has not been used in court in a case to challenge discrimination against LGBT people.
