Background

The law originated from an initiative of the Association for Civil Rights in Israel. One of the practices that sped up the enactment of the law, was discrimination frequently practiced by bouncers at nightclub entrances. In addition, setting separate and different age limits for the entrance of men and women into nightclubs was made illegal by this law.

Exceptions

The law does not apply directly to discrimination on the grounds of disability, since accessibility arrangements for disabled persons, and prohibition of discrimination are covered by the Equal Rights for Persons with Disabilities Law.
