O’Brien Criminal and Civil Solicitors can provide legal advice to an individual or entity that is defending a complaint against them in the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT).
Read about how our civil solicitor successfully defended a client against complaints made before NCAT.
Complaint to Anti-Discrimination Board
A man lodged a complaint of discrimination with the Anti-Discrimination Board (the ‘Board’) against our client “the company”.
The complainant got an employment offer to work on a construction project. The complainant alleged that the position offered to him was withdrawn when the company learned of his age. Thus, he suffered discrimination by not getting an opportunity to show his abilities in the job.
The matter failed to settle at a conciliation conference at the Board. Subsequently the complaint then went to the Equal Opportunity Division of the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT) for hearing.
NCAT hearing leads to dismissal of complaint
Our civil solicitor represented the company during the NCAT hearing. The company’s case was that there was a misunderstanding between the complainant and the company. The company had not withdrawn the offered position because of the complainant’s age but sought to offer a more suitable position for him.
NCAT ordered the dismissal of the matter.
