Equal Opportunities Commission

Know Your Rights

Our foremost duty as a Commission is to work towards the elimination of discrimination and the promotion of equality of opportunity and good relations between persons of different status. In this respect, it is essential that you, as Mauritian citizens, know your rights. Each Mauritian citizen, irrespective of his or her status (age, caste, colour, creed, ethnic origin, impairment, marital status, place of origin, political opinion, race, sex or sexual orientation) has the right to be treated equally in the same or similar circumstances. If you believe that you have been treated less favourably as compared to a person of a different status, you may approach the Commission.
