Advice and assistance with complaints

If you are unsure whether you can make a complaint to the Commission, contact our free Queensland-wide information and enquiry service. We can arrange an interpreter if required.

We can give confidential information about your rights and responsibilities under the Anti-Discrimination Act and the Human Rights Act, but we cannot provide legal advice.

If you need help putting your complaint in writing, we will try and refer you to someone who can assist you. In some cases we may be able to provide help ourselves.

If we can’t deal with your complaint, we will try to refer you to an agency which can help you.
