Office of the Anti-Discrimination Commissioner

The Office of the Anti-Discrimination Commissioner supports the work of the Tasmanian Anti-Discrimination Commissioner to fulfill her functions under the Anti-Discrimination Act 1998 (Tas).

This includes investigating and attempting to resolve complaints of discrimination and related unlawful conduct under the Act.

We also provide policy advice and support to government and others to promote compliance with the Act.  We undertake a range or projects on policy issues relating to discrimination.

A key area of work is promotion of awareness and understanding of the Act, including the rights and obligations that exist under the Act.  This is done through formal training, community education, promotional events and material, and media.


Drop us a line, ask us a question ...

Do you have a question about discrimination, sexual harassment, the Act or functions of this office? If you do, fill out the Online enquiry form and we will answer your questions.


Been abused or harassed?  Seen abuse or harassment? - Report It!

You can use the Report It! form to tell us about what happened to you or what you saw happen to someone else.  Report It! form PDF

This will help us to identify abuse and harassment that may be happening in the community so we can focus our educational programs to these areas and work with other organisations to prevent this recurring.

If you have been seriously intimidated or harmed you should report this to Tasmania Police.

Completing the Report It! form is not the same as making a formal complaint under the Act.
