    Hi all,

    Would workplace discrimination (pursuant of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977) be taken to the Anti Discrimination Board or NSW Courts? Please explain the type of resolution this would cause.

    Hi Toqual,

    You could take such an issue to either. Or perhaps to the Fair Work Commission though note time frames of 21 days generally for that avenue.

    There are a lot of factors as to why you would or should go to one avenue rather than another. Best you seek advice on that, further.

    Paul.

    I don't believe that answered my question. Thank you though @Paul Cott

    What would the resolution be at the Anti-Discrimination Board?

    Toqual,

    As I am from Victoria I am unable to comment specifically on the NSW Anti discrimination Board and outcomes.

    If it is similar the Victorian equivalent though, the first step once you lodge a complaint is mediation or conciliation. There, almost anything, if mutually agreed, can be the outcome. Apart from that though, I cannot comment.
