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 or the Federal Magistrates Service.
** 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 President 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.
