Equal Opportunity Commission

You can complain to the Equal Opportunity Commission if you have been treated unfairly in school life, work life or community life, because of your personal characteristics such as race, disability, etc.

We will help you and the other person reach an agreement to resolve the complaint, if possible. Common examples of agreed solutions are:

  • an apology, public or private
  • a change of decision e.g., allowing you to take part in an activity that you were excluded from
  • an agreement to change a practice or policy e.g., a change to club membership rules.
  • an agreement to send staff for training (if the discrimination seems to have occurred through lack of knowledge)
  • a payment for any monetary losses and for hurt feelings or humiliation.

If you reach an agreement, that ends the complaint. If not, you can take your case to the Equal Opportunity Tribunal for a decision. This is like a court case.
