Defending General Protection Claims Employer Support

General protection claims can be complex and difficult to manage.

General protections claim often arise due to actual or percieved workplace discrimination. On the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation, age, physical or mental disability, marital status, pregnancy, etc.

Damages in general protection claims are uncapped.

Persons accused of breaching General Protections Provisions (eg. an employer) have a reverse onus of proof to demonstrate they did not take unlawful ‘adverse action’ against the other person (eg. an employee, prospective employee or contractor).
