The Reich Discrimination Act of 976 (2 Hei. 3 c. 3, German: Reichsdiskriminierungsgesetz, RDG) is an Act of the Reichsparlament of New Bayern passed to outlaw severe forms of discrimination — based on race, socio-financial standing, sexual or political orientation and gender — in the workplace or in "venues of consumption", which include restaurants and stores.

The first conviction under this act was Johann Mijkovic, at the time a senior manager of IT company Bachscom, who refused to employ homosexual worker Gerhard Beinhord, despite the latter having all qualifications required for employment. Beinhord filed a lawsuit against Mijkovic. The court battle resulted in Mijkovic being forced to recompense Beinhord in the form of a fine of RM 500,000, as well as six months of community service.

The RDA grants to victims the right to file a lawsuit against someone who "subjected [them] to discrimination such as

  • Refusing to employ [them] on grounds of race, socio-financial standing, sexual or political orientation and/or gender;
  • Refusing to serve [them] on same grounds in venues of consumption;
  • Refusing to render [them] services on same grounds regarding work in the service sector (encompassing schoolteachers, servicemen, etc.)"
