If you have been unfairly treated by a person (or people) based on race, ethnicity, gender, religion, country of origin, sexual preference, a physical/mental disability, disease, age or due to family responsibilities, then you have the right to commence legal proceedings against those responsible for the discrimination.
It is suggested you document the discrimination or behaviour against you. Keep a clear record of all important events, meetings, times etc.
These situations often occur in the workplace – if you are currently experiencing or think you are experiencing discrimination, then it is recommended to seek the advice of our experienced anti-discrimination and equal opportunity lawyers as soon as possible. We understand the often sensitive and difficult nature of such cases and can provide you with advice and discuss all the avenues available to you for resolving discrimination disputes.
