- About Deakin
Direct discrimination occurs if a person treats or proposes to treat a person with one of the attributes covered by the legislation less favourably than someone without that attribute or personal characteristic.
Indirect discrimination occurs when an unreasonable requirement, condition or practice, which may appear to be neutral, in fact has a disproportionately negative impact on people with particular attributes.
If you believe you have experienced discrimination in a situation related to your study or other University activities, we encourage you to seek advice and address the issue directly, either informally or by making a complaint.
