Victimisation
The discrimination legislation provides protection from victimisation when someone has brought proceedings under the discrimination legislation, given evidence or information or anything else in relation to their or anothers discrimination proceedings, or made an allegation of discrimination. Victimisation does not cover a person giving false evidence or information or making false allegations if the information or allegations or evidence are made in bad faith. Police Officers may also be protected by the Public Interest Disclosure Act (whistle blowing) should they raise a complaint.
