What can I complain about?

The prohibited grounds of discrimination are set out in section 21 of the Human Rights Act. They are:

It is against the law to be discriminated against in many areas of public life, including in work, education, official practice and policy and the provision of goods and services. The Commission can also consider broader human rights issues.

These grounds apply if they currently exist, have existed in the past, are suspected or are assumed to have existed by the person alleged to have discriminated or relate to a relative or associate of a person.
