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.
