A lot of discrimination cases are going to be settled by settling for a settlement rather than going to trial.
This is because, while there are a lot of different types of discrimination that can be claimed, there are also a lot more different types that can only be claimed under the law.
There are many factors that are involved in the definition of discrimination, and that means that some of the claims made under the Fair Work Act may be less likely to succeed if they are dismissed by the court.
The Equal Opportunity Commissioner (EOC) can decide if a claim is a case of discrimination if it involves discrimination of any kind, such as being treated unfairly in employment or housing.
You can read more about the different types and how they work in the Equal Opportunity Act.

If you are seeking to hire a lawyer, it is a good idea to contact the appropriate branch of the Fair Employment Tribunal for advice on your situation.
If the claim is against your employer, you can contact your employer directly, or contact the Fair Labor Standards Act Commissioner (FLSA) directly.
If there is a claim that is not against your workplace, contact the Employment Tribunal of Western Australia (ETWA).
A lawyer can help you with your claim if you are an individual and have the right to file a claim.
A lawyer will discuss the claims against you with you, and you may be able to negotiate a settlement.
If your claim is dismissed, you will need to make a claim for compensation to the employer.
If this is not possible, the EOC may choose to settle the claim for you, or to pay the compensation to you directly.
You may also be able for the EOWA to apply for a Federal Court injunction to stop you from doing any further work on the basis of your claim.
You are able to lodge a claim under the EOE, if you have already applied for a claim to the EOWT, or if you made an application to the Federal Court for an injunction against you.
If a claim against you is dismissed under the Federal Equal Opportunity and Anti-Discrimination Act (EOEAA), the EOA may consider whether or not you have successfully argued your case to the court, and make a decision.
If an injunction is granted, the court will be able use that information to decide whether or to proceed with your claims against your employers.
If no claim is made in court, the case may be referred to the Fair Housing Tribunal for further advice.
If not, a decision will be made on your claim against your current employer.
The Fair Work Tribunal can also decide to dismiss your claim under section 16 of the EEOAA, which deals with discrimination by a company.
If someone is involved in a dispute that has not been referred to a court, you may wish to contact a lawyer.
If possible, you should contact your current and former employers.
The EOC has been criticised for not being sufficiently forthcoming about what it is doing to investigate discrimination claims and to identify cases that may need to be dealt with.
If discrimination claims have not been settled by settlement, your claim may be dismissed without any further action being taken.
If one of your claims is dismissed without your employer taking any further steps to investigate your claim, the Fair Wage Act may require that your claim be referred back to the EEOC.
The EEOC will decide whether to take further action on your case if the EOD is satisfied that the claim has been properly dealt with and the relevant provisions of the Act have been complied with.

If all your claims are dismissed without further action, you need contact the EOPT to seek compensation from your employer for lost wages.
The amount of compensation is determined by the amount of lost wages that you will have to pay your employer.
You will need the written permission of your employer to lodge this claim.
If both of your requests are refused, your employer may still seek compensation for lost pay.
The reason for a refusal may depend on whether the company has breached the Fair Pay Act or the Fair Working Act.
If it has breached both, your company could be liable to an additional penalty.
