Jíchová, Leona ; Tomšej, Jakub (referee)
Sexual harassment and other forms of harassment at a workplace Abstract This thesis focuses on the issue of sexual harassment and other forms of harassment within the framework of employment relations. It addresses sexual harassment, which can be considered as one of the most serious forms of harassment, as well as a type of discrimination that represents an unwanted, intense and crucial interference in the working life of a harassed person. The aim of this thesis is to analyse the importance of adequate prevention in individual workplaces, the relevance of establishing applicable control mechanisms to ensure compliance with set rules and the inadequacy of the currently provided protection for victims. This thesis proposes possible corrections and tools that should ideally be applied in workplaces and their compliance should be enforced and monitored by state authorities. Moreover, it is gradually supported by related judgements on the matter. The premises and hypotheses are compared with the results of various surveys and studies. The main chapters contain suggestions and considerations aimed at improving the current situation. This thesis is divided into seven chapters. The individual chapters are structured in such a way that the reader first gains a theoretical understanding of the issue and is thus...

Pasichnyk, Viktorija ; Chytilová, Julie (advisor) ; Kantová, Klára (referee)
This thesis examines the extent of discrimination of Ukrainian citizens in the Czech labor market by analyzing the results of a correspondence experiment that involves sending pre-designed resumes of fictitious applicants to job offers posted online. Each job offer was randomly assigned a Czech or Ukrainian resume, and the responses from recruiters were collected. The interview callback rates were subsequently analyzed, indicating that Czech applicants have by 72.7 % higher callback rate than Ukrainian applicants. Results also show a decrease in the callback rate of Ukrainians over time. This leads to the conclusion that discriminatory practices against Ukrainian citizens exist in the Czech labor market.
Employment of Roma in the labor market in the Týn nad Vltavou region from the perspective of employers
The bachelor thesis deals with the issue of placement of members of the Roma minority in the labor market in the Týn nad Vltavou region from the perspective of employers. The aim of this work is to analyze the issue of employment Roma from the perspective of employers in the region of Týn nad Vltavou. At work I set two research questions. My research questions are: "What is the employer's opinion on the employment of Roma" and "What is the employer's experience with employment of the Roma". A qualitative research strategy and technique of a semi - structured interview were used in the research part. The research took place in the Týn nad Vltavou region, where the interviews took place with 7 respondents. The interviews were rewritten and then encoded. Research results show that from the perspective of the employers in the Týn nad Vltavou region, most of them have experience with a Roma minority in employment. Furthermore, it was found that employers think that Roma on the labor market have the same possibilities at work as others. In the next topic it became clear that the informants think that the Roma have the same possibilities as the others in all terms. Out of prejudice that causes unemployment to Roma, employers think this claim is true. The last topic discussed resulted in the conclusion that employers are of the opinion that the involvement of a Roma minority in a team at work would be trouble - free. The benefit of this work is that it can serve as a better insight into this issue. It can be used as aid for the Labor Office in Týn nad Vltavou regarding this topic.

(Not) equality between women and men in the legal system of the Czech Republic
Zděnek, Jiří ; Kosek, Jan (advisor) ; Chmel, Jan (referee)
v anglickém jazyce This thesis critically examines the current state of gender inequality in the Czech Republic with a focus on work, family life, and politics. The main objective is to identify the causes and consequences of these inequalities, and to evaluate whether and to what extent they are due to natural differences between men and women or to the influence of social constructs. Additionally, the role of law in relation to the redress of gender inequality is explored. The theoretical part of the thesis provides an overview of key concepts and theories related to gender equality and inequality, as well as a discussion of the development of gender equality legislation within international, European, and national law. In the empirical part of the thesis, a comprehensive analysis of various sources, including statistical data and opinion polls, is conducted to provide detailed insights into gender inequality in the Czech Republic. This analysis covers multiple areas, including income disparities, childcare responsibilities, political representation, and vertical and horizontal segregation. Furthermore, the thesis examines the social and cultural factors that significantly influence gender equality, which often fall outside the purview of legal frameworks.
Racial discrimination and lost innovation: evidence from US inventors, 1895–1925
Coluccia, D. M. ; Dossi, G. ; Ottinger, Sebastian
How can racial discrimination harm innovation? We study this question using data on US inventors linked to population censuses in 1895-1925. Our novel identification strategy leverages plausibly exogenous variation in the timing of lynchings and the name of the victims.\nWe find an immediate and persistent decrease in patents granted to inventors who share their names with the victims of lynchings, but only when victims are Black. We hypothesize that lynchings accentuate the racial content of the victim’s name to patent examiners,\nwho do not observe inventor race from patent applications. We interpret these findings as evidence of discrimination by patent examiners and provide evidence against alternative mechanisms.
