Grounds to making discrimination complaints
Whether a person has grounds to make a discrimination complaint, depends on several questions:
- Is the discrimination of a type that is prohibited by law?
- Did the discrimination occur in an area covered by the law?
- Does the conduct fall under any of the permitted exemptions?
- Is the complaint within the time limit?
- Has the person suffered some detriment (harm)?
These factors are considered below. If a person has grounds for a complaint they also need to consider which agency they should deal with.
