The Federal Constitution, which entered into force in 2000, contains a provision on equality and non-discrimination (art. 8). By amending the article of the previous Constitution, which stated that “All Swiss are equal before the law”, article 8, paragraph 1, affirms the equality of all “human beings” before the law. Paragraph 2 of the same article declares that “Nobody shall suffer discrimination, particularly on grounds of origin, race, sex, age, language, social position, lifestyle, religious, philosophical or political convictions, or because of a physical or mental disability.”


Could one argue that the ANAG and the up-and-coming AusG discriminate on grounds of origin (i.e. access to employment) ?
