English Abstract

The main purpose of this report is to present a critical analysis of the Human Rights Complaints system, specifically citing the problems of disrespectful treatment of complainants, bias, delay, inappropriate pressure to settle, failure to provide information and a lack of efficiency and productivity. The report concludes that as a result of numerous specific problems, the public perceives the System as incapable of delivering justice, and consequently feel that there is no point in lodging a complaint. The report attempts to address this problem by offering recommendations for every stage of the Complaint process.

Officers' reports frequently reveal a profound misunderstanding of how discrimination is manifested, as illustrated by the relevant caselaw: For example, officers often conclude that there is no discrimination when fewer than 100% employees in a workplace report that they have experienced it.
