Praxis Submitted Comments on Model Law on Gender Equality

With an intention to contribute to more efficient implementation of the principle of gender equality, Praxis submitted comments on the Model Law on Gender Equality.

Specifically, Gender Equality Committee of the Ombudsperson developed the Model Law on Gender Equality, which was presented on 10 December 2014 in the Assembly of the Republic of Serbia. On that occasion, the Ombudsperson invited all interested parties to submit comments on the presented text of the Model Law on Gender Equality until 15 February 2015.

Praxis has given several suggestions. Specifically, Praxis finds that concept of indirect discrimination needs to be aligned with EU acquis communautaire in the area of anti-discrimination. Also, it is necessary to sanction the obligation of political parties, trade unions and vocational associations to adopt the action plan with special measures for encouragement and improvement of equal presence of men and women in their bodies every four years. It is necessary to intervene with special measures in the area of professional development and training in situations when the structure of employees by gender at the employer’s level is unfavourable so as to allow the equal representation of under-represented gender in managing and decision-making bodies, as professional development and training are an important factor of progress.
