Discrimination in the workplace

Public Sector and Local Government workers can raise discrimination claims just as equally as other workers.

The relevant bodies are the Australian Human Rights Commission; and the Equal Opportunity Commission of South Australia.

One of the most common workplace discrimination complaints is sexual harassment.

There is a 12 month time limit on making complaints under these laws. Complaints will first go through a process of conciliation and, if they do not resolve, either to the Federal Court (AHRC) or the Equal Opportunity Tribunal (EOC).

See the Chapter on Discrimination in the Law Handbook for more information.
