Discrimination, Bullying & Harassment Law & Lawyers

Over the past 30 years the Commonwealth Government and the state and territory governments have introduced anti-discrimination law to help protect people from discrimination and harassment.

The following laws operate at a federal level and the Australian Human Rights Commission has statutory responsibilities under them:

• Age Discrimination Act 2004
• Australian Human Rights Commission Act 1986
• Disability Discrimination Act 1992
• Racial Discrimination Act 1975
• Sex Discrimination Act 1984

Commonwealth laws and the state/territory laws generally cover the same grounds and areas of discrimination. However, there are some 'gaps' in the protection that is offered between different states and territories and at a Commonwealth level.

In addition, there are circumstances where only the Commonwealth law would apply or where only the state law would apply.

What is unlawful discrimination?

Under federal and state legislation, unlawful discrimination occurs when someone, or a group of people, is treated less favourably than another person or group because of their race, colour, national or ethnic origin; sex, pregnancy or marital status; age; disability; religion; sexual preference; trade union activity; or some other characteristic specified under anti-discrimination or human rights legislation.

Workplace discrimination can occur in:

• recruiting and selecting staff
• terms, conditions and benefits offered as part of employment
• who receives training and what sort of training is offered
• who is considered and selected for transfer, promotion, retrenchment or dismissal.

What is unlawful harassment?

Under federal and state legislation, unlawful harassment occurs when someone is made to feel intimidated, insulted or humiliated because of their race, colour, national or ethnic origin; sex; disability; sexual preference; or some other characteristic specified under antidiscrimination or human rights legislation . It can also happen if someone is working in a ‘hostile’ – or intimidating – environment.

If you feel you have been discriminated against and would like legal help, then please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left, or click here.

Harassment can include behaviour such as:

• telling insulting jokes about particular racial groups
• sending explicit or sexually suggestive emails
• displaying offensive or pornographic posters or screen savers
• making derogatory comments or taunts about someone’s race or religion
• asking intrusive questions about someone’s personal life, including their sex life.

The nature of harassment/discrimination

Harassing behaviour can range from serious to less serious levels, however one-off incidents can still constitute harassment. Also, where continued, such behaviour can undermine the standard of conduct within a work area, which may erode the well being of the individual or group being targeted and lead to lower overall staff performance.

The absence of complaints is not necessarily an indication that no harassment or discrimination is occurring. The person subjected to harassing or discriminating behaviour does not always complain. This is not necessarily because the act is trivial, but because the person may lack the confidence to speak up on their own behalf or feel too intimidated or embarrassed to complain.

If you feel you have been the victim of discrimination or harassment and would like legal help, then please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left, or click here.

Hostile working environment

Employers also need to be aware of their responsibilities to ensure that the working environment or workplace culture is not sexually or racially ‘hostile’. Examples of a potentially hostile working environment are where pornographic materials are displayed and where crude conversations, innuendo or offensive jokes are part of the accepted culture. A person has the right to complain about the effects of a sexually or racially hostile working environment, even if the conduct in question was not specifically targeted at them.

Workplace harassment or discrimination

Workplace harassment or discrimination must not be confused with legitimate comment and advice (including relevant negative comment or feedback) from managers and supervisors on the work performance or work related behaviour of an individual or group.

The process of providing feedback to staff during a formal performance appraisal, or counselling staff regarding their work performance, will not always be free of stress. Managers should manage these processes with sensitivity, but they should not avoid their responsibility to provide full and frank feedback to staff.

What is workplace bullying?

One definition of workplace bullying is “the repeated less favourable treatment of a person by another or others in the workplace, which may be considered unreasonable and inappropriate workplace practice. It includes behaviour that intimidates, offends, degrades or humiliates a worker”. (Source ACTUQ/QCCI/Qld Govt Dept of Workplace Health and Safety)

Bullies usually utilise power attributed to their status, skills or position in the workplace, and both men and women can be the targets and/or the perpetrators. Workplace bullying can occur between a worker and a manager or supervisor, or between co-workers.

Bullying behaviour can range from very obvious verbal or physical assault to very subtle psychological abuse.

Bullying behaviour may include:

•physical or verbal abuse
•yelling, screaming or offensive language
•excluding or isolating employees
•psychological harassment
•intimidation
•assigning meaningless tasks unrelated to the job
•giving employees impossible jobs
•deliberately changed work rosters to inconvenience particular employees
•undermining work performance by deliberately withholding information vital for effective work performance

Those were some expensive chips.

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 00:00:00 EST

I’ve posted here and here about the lawsuit filed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against Walgreen, which terminated a diabetic drug store employee for eating a bag of potato chips without immediately paying for them. The employee contended that she had to have the chips because her blood sugar was low, and she said she was unable to comply with the store’s normal procedures for paying for merchandise.

Facebook Mistake by Daughter Costs Dad $80,000

Tue, 18 Mar 2014 00:00:00 EST

Most settlement agreements include a nondisclosure provision buried in all the legalese that requires the plaintiff to keep the terms of the settlement a secret. Based on this language, the defendant can rest assured the settlement will not be broadcast and made public, creating bad publicity and inviting more lawsuits. However, the reality is breaches are rarely caught. Whether a plaintiff tells his wife the settlement figure or buys a round of beer at the local bar telling the patrons about the settlement, we rarely ever find out and, if we do, proof of the breach is hard to find. In a recent and very unusual case, a plaintiff found out that a breach of this provision can cost you.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission reported in a press release that Interstate Distributor Company, a trucking firm, agreed to pay $4.85 million to settle a lawsuit alleging pattern and practice violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The lawsuit, filed by the EEOC in a federal court in Colorado, claims Interstate maintained a “no restrictions” leave policy in which employees on leave were automatically terminated after exhausting 12 weeks of leave unless they were able to return to full-duty work without limitation. The lawsuit and sizeable settlement raises concerns for employers regarding potential liability arising from personnel policies.

Sixth Circuit Decision Offers FICA Tax Refund Opportunities for Severance Pay 09/11/2012

Wed, 12 Sep 2012 00:00:00 EST

Any employer that implemented reductions in force or layoffs after 2008 should consider filing refund claims for the Federal Insurance Contribution Act (FICA) taxes paid on severance benefits based on a recent Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals decision. In United States v. Quality Stores, Inc., No. 10-1563 (September 7, 2012), the Sixth Circuit held that severance payments paid to employees pursuant to an involuntary reduction in force were not “wages” for FICA tax purposes.

Sixth Circuit Affirms that Severance Is Not "Wages" Subject to FICA, Creating Circuit Split

Wed, 12 Sep 2012 00:00:00 EST

In United States v. Quality Stores, Inc., 2012 U.S. App. LEXIS 18820 (6th Cir. Sept. 7, 2012), the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed a district court ruling that severance payments were not wages subject to Social Security and Medicare taxes ("FICA" taxes). The decision sets up an explicit conflict with a decision of the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit that will likely require congressional action or Supreme Court review to resolve. Based on the circuit split, employers should remain hesitant to stop reporting FICA on severance payments until a more conclusive outcome is reached. Any employer that has paid severance in recent years should also consider filing protective refund claims with the IRS in order to preserve its rights.

"Sugar Bear" Unleashed: Employee with Emotional Disabilities May Be Entitled to Bring Comfort Animal to Work

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 00:00:00 EST

A federal district court in Hawaii has ruled that the branch manager of a rental car company may have been discriminated against on the basis of his depression and adjustment disorder disabilities when he was terminated for an angry outburst directed at a subordinate after having been warned about similar misconduct on past occasions. Assaturian v. Hertz Corp. The final incident occurred about four months after the manager was told by his employer that he could no longer bring “Sugar Bear,” a Shih Tzu, to work with him unless he provided medical documentation establishing his need to do so. According to the manager, “Sugar Bear” was a licensed service animal that helped him control his emotions and reduce his stress. The manager had not complied with his employer’s request for documentation by the time of the incident that led to his termination, but claimed during discovery in the lawsuit that he had not had sufficient opportunity to do so. According to the managers’ co-workers, the dog was not leashed and regularly urinated on the floor.

No Coverage for the Cantankerous? The Ninth Circuit Goes "Retro" In Finding "No Disability"

Fri, 22 Aug 2014 00:00:00 EST

In Weaving v. City of Hillsboro,1 the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit waxed nostalgic by reversing a jury and lower court finding that a police officer with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) had a “disability” within the meaning of the 2008 amendments to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The Ninth Circuit held that the former officer was not disabled, because his ADHD – and associated abrasive behavior toward colleagues – did not substantially limit him in the major life activities of working or interacting with others. Before the amendments to the ADA, this decision might not have been noteworthy. Given the far more expansive interpretation of “disability” under the 2008 ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA), however, the Weaving case assumes the aura of a “Man Bites Dog” story by resisting the tendency of courts to err on the side of finding threshold protection under the ADAAA.

Must an Employer Modify its Leave of Absence Policy to Ensure Compliance with the ADA?

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 00:00:00 EST

Executive Summary: When is modification of a no-fault or inflexible leave of absence policy required as an accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)? Although the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has taken the position that, absent undue hardship, an employer must modify such a policy to allow for additional leave to a disabled employee, the case law interpreting the ADA has provided no definitive guidance for determining when requests for additional leave may be unreasonable under the Act.
