The Complaint Handling Process

*When complaints
under the Racial, Sex & Disability Discrimination Acts are terminated,
the complainant may apply to have the allegations heard and determined
by the Federal Court.

** Complaints under
the Human Rights & Equal Opportunity Commission Act concerning discrimination
in employment or a breach of human rights, which cannot be conciliated,
cannot be taken to the Federal Court. If the Present is satisfied that
the subject matter of the complaint constitutes discrimination or a breach
of human rights these findings are reported to the Attorney-General for
tabling in Parliament
