Equal Employment Opportunity issues and Workplace discrimination

Workplace discrimination falls into two categories: direct and indirect.

Direct workplace discrimination

Applies in situations where employees claim to have suffered direct workplace discrimination such as being dismissed, demoted, disadvantaged or treated badly at work because of their:

  • race
  • sex
  • age
  • disability or impairment
  • pregnancy
  • family or carer's responsibilities
  • marital status
  • union or industrial activity
  • religion
  • sexual orientation
  • political belief or activity
  • personal association with someone who has, or is assumed to have, one of the above characteristics, or
  • making a complaint or inquiry about their employment.

Indirect workplace discrimination

Indirect discrimination occurs where a condition, requirement or practice is imposed on you that disadvantages you because of an attribute you have. For example, the requirement that you regularly attend staff meetings outside of school hours if you are known to have family or caring responsibilities could amount to indirect discrimination.
We have experience in representing both employers and employees in workplace discrimination claims.
