Figures from the Norwegian Anti-Discrimination Tribunal show that 422 cases were processed in 2021. That is a doubling of the number of cases since 2018.

People with disabilities made up the largest group that used the right to complain last year, the newspaper Dagen writes. The most common cases are otherwise related to ethnicity, gender, and age.

Tribunal director Ashan Nishantha told handikapnytt that the total number of cases has doubled since 2018.

“This is probably partly due to the fact that the tribunal has become better known through our campaign, and also the fact that we have expanded our area of ​​authority to also include sexual harassment and retaliation in whistleblowing cases,” Nishantha stated.
