It is against the law for anyone to hassle or victimise you or treat you unfairly because:

  • you have complained to your employer or another person about discrimination or harassment;

  • you have complained to the Anti-Discrimination Board; or

  • you have supported someone with a discrimination or harassment complaint, or acted as a witness in a discrimination or harassment case.

You can lodge a separate complaint of victimisation with the Anti-Discrimination Board if you have been victimised because of a discrimination or harassment complaint.

In some cases a victimisation complaint has been upheld in court even when the original complaint of discrimination or harassment was not.
