Bullying, Discrimination or Sexual Harrassment
Complaint and Report Form
This Complaint and Report Form allows for complaints or the reporting of occurrences of bullying, discrimination or sexual harassment to be made against barristers by other barristers, or by persons who engage with barristers. For example, personal assistants, secretaries, clerking staff, ACT Bar Association administration, volunteers, solicitors briefing or working with barristers, and those attending Bar related events.
It is intended to be used for the following purposes:
- the making of a complaint of bullying, discrimination or sexual harassment whereby an investigation and response is sought; or
- the reporting of an occurrence of bullying, discrimination or sexual harassment either experienced or witnessed for the purpose of better informing the training and awareness needs and initiatives of the Bar.
All information is treated confidentially in accordance with the principles as to confidentiality set out in the relevant policies:
No identifying information will be provided for any external reporting processes.
Please note if you are a client that wishes to make a complaint about your barrister, complaints should be directed to the CEO of the ACT Bar Association to be dealt with by the ACT Bar Ethics Committee.
