My issue is about victimisation

It is victimisation if a person is dismissed or treated badly because they have made a complaint under the Employment Equality Acts or Equal Status Acts.

Victimisation is against the law. The law which deals with victimisation is the Employment Equality Acts 1998 – 2015 (EEA).

It is victimisation if you are threatened, treated adversely or dismissed because:

  • you make a complaint of discrimination against your employer
  • you have been involved in a discrimination case at the Workplace Relations Commission
  • you helped a co-worker to make a complaint of discrimination
  • your work has been compared to that of a person who is involved in a complaint
  • you were involved as a witness in a discrimination case at the Workplace Relations Commission
  • you have taken a discrimination complaint to court
  • you have told your employer that you intend to do any of the things mentioned in this list.

Do you think that you have been victimised for any of these reasons?
