* When complainants under the Age, Racial, Sex and Disability Discrimination
Acts are terminated, the complainant may apply to have the allegations heard and
determined by the Federal Court of Australia or the Federal Magistrates
Court.

** Complaints under the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission Act
concerning discrimination in employment or a breach of human rights, which
cannot be conciliated, cannot be taken to court. If the President is satisfied
that the subject matter of the complaint constitutes discrimination or a breach
of human rights these findings are reported to the Attorney-General for tabling
in Parliament.
