Reports to the Minister under the AHRC Act

In addition to receiving complaints of unlawful discrimination, the Commission can inquire into complaints of breaches of human rights and workplace discrimination under the Australian Human Rights Commission Act 1986 (Cth) (AHRC Act).

When the Commission receives a complaint of a breach of Human Rights or workplace discrimination, the Commission will attempt to resolve the complaint through conciliation.

If conciliation is unsuccessful or inappropriate and the Commission finds that there has been a breach of human rights or workplace discrimination has occurred – then the Commission can prepare a report of the complaint, including recommendations for action, for the Attorney General. The report must be tabled in Parliament.
