In June 2016, CDZ and the Polish Society of Anti-Discrimination Law (PSADL) signed a cooperation agreement under which CDZ will provide free-of-charge legal support in cases related to human rights, and in particular to afford legal protection against unwarranted unequal treatment.
The cooperation concerns cases of discrimination based on gender, age, disability, race or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, sexual identity, religion, denomination or non-belief. It also covers unlawful unequal treatment in such areas as labor and employment, access to goods and services, education, healthcare or social welfare.
As part of the cooperation, CDZ will represent persons referred by the PSADL before common courts, the Supreme Court, administrative courts, law enforcement agencies, public administration bodies, the European Court of Human Rights and other international authorities whose task is to protect the rights and liberties of individuals.
The CDZ lawyers involved in the project include Ewa Don-Siemion and Piotr Kryczek, Partners, and Weronika Papucewicz.
