Anti-Discrimination Information - Queensland

Description

The Anti-Discrimination Commission Queensland (ADCQ) assists employers and employees, service providers and the general community to understand their rights and obligations under Queensland anti-discrimination laws and to resolve complaints of discrimination, sexual harassment, vilification, victimisation and public interest disclosure reprisals which are lodged under Queensland anti-discrimination law.

The ADCQ resolves discrimination, sexual harassment, victimisation and vilification complaints covered by the Queensland Anti-Discrimination Act 1991 (the Act) through conciliation. Complaints that cannot be resolved at a conciliation conference may be referred for a public hearing to decide whether there has been a breach of the Anti-Discrimination Act.  The Queensland Industrial Relations Commission will deal with complaints that are work-related and the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal will deal with all other complaints.

The ADCQ provides confidential information and training for employers and employees, service providers and the general community on anti-discrimination law, conciliation, and complaint procedures under the Queensland Anti-Discrimination Act 1991.
