Equal Opportunity Claims

Unlawful discrimination can occur when a person has been treated unfairly, based on:

  • Race
  • Sex
  • Chosen gender
  • Age
  • Disability or impairment
  • Pregnancy
  • Religion
  • Sexual orientation
  • Marital or domestic partnership status
  • Caring responsibilities
  • Spouse or partner’s identity

Sexual Harassment and victimisation (or bullying) are also unlawful and may be criminal offences.

Discrimination is prohibited in the course of or in the provision of:

  • Employment
  • Education
  • Goods and services
  • Accommodation
  • Clubs and associations
  • Advertising
  • In other circumstances

It is unlawful for anyone, including your employer, to treat you badly or take action against you for making a complaint of discrimination or harassment.

If you have been subjected to discrimination in the workplace, your main concern will be to make the unfair treatment stop. Our lawyers can advise you about how to achieve this and whether you have a claim for discrimination, harassment or victimisation under State or Federal laws.

Where possible, we can help you get orders to stop the behaviour and to secure compensation for lost wages, pain, suffering, hurt and distress. In our experience, most workplace discrimination cases are resolved on a confidential basis and without going to court or another tribunal.

Often a discrimination claim can arise as part of a workers compensation claim. A lawyer with experience in both areas can assist you to understand how these two processes can be handled together.

If you are uncertain about whether you can make a claim, what is involved or whether it is worthwhile doing so, contact us to arrange a free, no obligation consultation. At that meeting we will be able to explain to you the process involved in making a claim for discrimination and whether your case can be conducted on a No Win No Fee basis.

When you choose a lawyer you need to be absolutely sure that not only do they have the knowledge and skills you require, but also that they will provide the level of service you expect.

Contact us now for a free initial consultation to discuss how we can help you.
