New Resource: Discrimination Claims Self-Representation Toolkit

JobWatch is pleased to announce the launch of our new ‘Discrimination Claims Self-Representation Toolkit’.

October 17, 2023

This new Toolkit resource joins our existing ‘Unfair Dismissal Self-Representation Toolkit’ and ‘Small Claims Toolkit’ which are crucial tools for increasing access to justice for individuals, especially as the demand in the community for legal support is greater than the services provided.

An upcoming JobWatch research report (register for the launch event on Wednesday 8 November) found that of people who experienced workplace discrimination, many were unlikely to pursue legal claims to address the discrimination they experienced, citing difficulties with the process, lack of understanding of how and where to apply, and an uncertainty about what they could expect from the process.

“I didn’t know what options were available to me at the time.”
(Survey Respondent)

This new Toolkit will guide people who have experienced workplace discrimination through the process of running their own discrimination claim through both state and federal jurisdictions. It is a clear guide for people capable of running their own claims up to the initial stage of conciliation, with checklists, sample presentations and letters, and explanations of procedures to aid their self-representation.

We thank the Victoria Law Foundation for their generous support of this new resource.
