It is against the law to treat a person less favourably because of a protected attribute.
The protected attributes under the Anti-Discrimination Act 1992 are somewhat broad and include race, sex, sexuality, age, marital status, pregnancy and impairment. Sometimes, people do not understand their rights or obligations under the legislation.
If you think you have been discriminated against or you are being accused of discriminating against a person, you should seek legal advice.
Kaliopi knows how the Anti-Discrimination Commission handles complaints, and can assist you by advising in relation to any complaint, and work with you to get you through the complaint process.
If you think you need advice, please contact us to make a time to speak to Kaliopi. This is what you can expect when you contact us:
- We will treat any information that you give us as confidential
- We will ask you for some brief information so that we can conduct a conflict check
- We will let you know if there are any consultation fees that will apply for your first conference with Kaliopi
