Discrimination Ombudsman (DO)
A simplified description of discrimination under the Discrimination Act encompasses anyone who has faced a prejudice or disadvantage, or who has been violated. The unfair treatment or violation must be associated with one of the seven kinds of specified discrimination: on the basis of sex, transgender identity or expression, ethnicity, religion or other belief, disability, sexual orientation, or age. Discrimination may be direct or indirect. Even a lack of accessibil-ity, the act of harassment, sexual harassment or being instructed to discriminate someone else are considered forms of discrimination.

The Discrimination Ombudsman (DO) is a government agency that works on behalf of the Swedish Parliament and the government to promote equal rights and opportunities, and to combat discrimination. You can turn to the DO if you have questions about discrimination or if you wish to file a complaint about something you perceived as discriminatory.
