Features of the Civil Law Procedure for Protection against Discrimination

Dr.Sc. Agim Nuhiu


The prevention and protection against discrimination shall be applicable for all natural and legal persons in the process of exercise of the rights and freedoms guaranteed with the Constitution and the legislation of the Republic of Macedonia.

The person considering that some right has been infringed because of discrimination is entitled to submit a lawsuit in front of a competent court. The provisions from the Law on litigation procedure are adequately applied for the procedure. A civil action is commenced with the filing of a complaint. The plaintiff must file the complaint with the court. The complaint must set forth the claims and the legal basis for discrimination.

In the procedure for protection against discrimination, besides the court for general local jurisdiction, the court in whose area is the seat, or the residence of the plaintiff, also has local jurisdiction.
