Antidiscrimination Act and Its Economic and Legal Connections from the Liberal Economic View
AbstractThe article deals with sex discrimination prohibition in the European community law as well as in the Czech law and it describes antidiscrimination juridical practise in the Czech Republic. It judges selected institutes of the antidiscrimination act from the point of view of their economic consequences. It shows to which behaviour the economic subjects are forced and analyses whether this behaviour is in accordance with economic rules of market economy, with principle of private property and free choices. It pays attention to equal opportunities and affirmative action as measures to ensure them, and the institute of burden of proof transfer to the accused. It concludes that the antidiscrimination act does not respect the natural rules of people´s behaviour in real economic relations and it seems to be an artificial authority construct, which serves special purposes.
