Making a complaint under the Employment Equality Acts
How to make a complaint under the Employment Equality Acts 1998 – 2015 (EEA)
Discrimination in the workplace can happen when your employer, workmate, or a company you are applying to, treat you less favourably than another person, because of who you are.
The EEA outlaws certain kinds of discrimination under nine specific grounds. It does not cover every form of discrimination.
If you believe you have been discriminated against under any of the nine grounds covered by the EEA, you can make a complaint to the Workplace Relations Commission.
You can do this in stages:
- Look for information to help you to decide whether to make a complaint
- Make sure you are within the time limits for making a complaint
- Make a complaint.
