Discrimination in the workplace on the basis of political views  

A newspaper fired an editor because of a piece he published concerning a Bedouin casualty of "Tzuk Eitan", the armed conflict in 2014. The clinic assisted the lawyers that are representing the editor pro bono. The case is pending.

 

Discrimination in the Government Advertising Agency  

The Government Advertising Agency is the agency in charge of "talking" with citizens: instructing them how to behave in emergency, safety measures in employment, rights and entitlements. The resources directed to advertising in Arabic is significantly smaller than their share in the population, and advertising is not suited to the unique needs of the Arab population. As a result, the clinic, together with partnering NGOs has approached the government advertising agency demanding it equalize the funding directed to the Arab citizens.

 

Accessibility to governmental services in Arabic

The clinic, together with the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) is engaged in action to promote access to governmental services in Arabic, such as documents concerning public housing and the execution office. The students visited execution offices in Haifa, Acre, Krayot, Nazareth and Hadera, and their reports will serve as a basis for legal action.

 

Discrimination of an Arab Student in a Teachers' College

The clinic represented an Arab student in a teachers' college who was forced to take a language aptitude test in Arabic, although he preferred to do the test in Hebrew. Following the clinic's involvement, the student was allowed to choose between doing the test in Hebrew and Arabic.
