CEACR Observation on Latvia under ILO Convention No. 111 (excerpt), 2006

1. Discrimination based on national extraction. The Committee notes that the Government’s report does not contain any information in reply to its previous comments concerning the application of the State Language Law and its implementing regulations with regard to access to employment and occupation, and the need to promote equal employment opportunities for all ethnic and linguistic minority groups. The Committee, therefore, urges the Government to provide in its next report information on the application of the State Language Law and its implementing regulations, including information on any measures taken to assess the impact of these measures on the employment opportunities of ethnic minority groups, and information on any relevant administrative and judicial decisions and sanctions imposed for violations of its provisions. It also reiterates its request to the Government to provide information on the efforts made to promote equal employment opportunities of these groups, including through language training.
