Victimisation at Work

Victimisation at Work


If you made a complaint about discrimination or harassment (within your organisation or to the Equal Opportunity Commission) and you are experiencing unfair treatment as a result, this is victimisation.

Victimisation also applies if you are being treated unfairly for helping someone else to make a complaint.  

You have the right to lodge a complaint about victimisation to the EOC under the Equal Opportunity Act 1984 (SA). 

If you are being victimised for another reason, contact SafeWork SA or your union for advice.

Note that you can only lodge a complaint after you have been victimised, and not in anticipation of being victimised for making a complaint.
