The Commission received a general complaint from the IHC about the accommodation of students with a disability within the education system. At any time during the Commission’s mediation process, a party may decide to take a dispute to the Human Rights Review Tribunal and seek representation from the Office of Human Rights Review Proceedings (OHRP).
As the matter was not resolved within the Commission’s mediation service, the IHC made an approach to the OHRP for representation. OHRP Director Robert Hesketh subsequently agreed to represent the IHC in taking the matter to the Human Rights Review Tribunal.
The matter will be heard by the Human Rights Review Tribunal, although that is unlikely to occur until early 2013.
