Grounds of discrimination

In Belgium, the law forbids discrimination based on different so-called ‘protected criteria’.

You are being discriminated against if you are less well treated than another person, in comparable circumstances, owing to your origin, a disability, your religion, your age, your sexual orientation, etc. However, a difference in treatment isn’t referred to as discrimination if it can be objectively and reasonably justified.
