CEACR Observation on Latvia under ILO Convention No. 111, 1999

In examining the Government’s report on the application of the Convention, the Committee has noted that a State Language Act was adopted in July 1999, but has not been promulgated. The Committee expresses concern that this Act, if it enters into force, might have a discriminatory effect on the employment or work of the large Russian-speaking minority in the country.

The Committee is addressing a request directly to the Government on this and other questions, and requests the Government to provide detailed information on this point.
