Here you can read a press article on the intended legal amendment.

In August 2016, the amendment to the Thuringian Industrial Code was passed in the first reading of the cabinet. After the amendment of the Act, discrimination based on ethnicity or religion will now be punishable by the regulatory agency with a fine of up to € 10,000.
Consultations with interest groups regarding the law are currently taking place, so that BUG could contribute by handing in a consultation paper.

The law is now to be adopted in the near future.
