This thesis observes the different attitudes of employers toward Roma applicants. The aim of the study is to find possible explanations for the high rejection rate that Roma struggle with in the labour market. With the use of multiple methods, the qualitative data could provide explanations, the numbers of previously collected quantitative finding could not. Factors, such as the importance of education, social and cultural background or the presence of prejudicial thought in the mind of an employer all have an impact on the assessment of a Roma job-seeker. Many of these characteristics cannot be changed by the applicant itself, these are intrapersonal or external circumstances. Using the three paradigms of Ruth Levitas to categorize the attitudes of employers, in order to draw a complex picture of the issue and what stands behind it. The main findings include the transformation of attitudes as an outcome of hiring Roma. Or how the impact of unpleasant personal experiences with Roma supports developing a prejudicial mindset. The presence of Antigypsyism ant its strength among majority society is also mentioned. Overall, it is not easy to find exact answers in the matrix of issues, although the above-mentioned subjects are all present in the thesis
