The human rights complaints process
QRIDA supports the aim of the Human Rights Act 2019 (Qld) (the Act) to embed respect for human rights in the culture of the Queensland public sector and ensure public functions are exercised in a principled way that is compatible with human rights. QRIDA manages the assessment and allocation of loans, grants and rebates while having regard to the needs and circumstances of eligible applicants and by making client focused decisions with regards to human rights.
From 1 January 2020, individuals who believe they are the subject of QRIDA’s alleged failure to act or make a decision in a way that is compatible with human rights may make a complaint to QRIDA.
If the complaint cannot or has not been resolved with QRIDA within 45 days, a person may make a human rights complaint to the QHRC. The QHRC may try to resolve the complaint, through either discussing the complaint with the complainant and QRIDA or, if appropriate, through conciliation. The aim is to seek meaningful resolution of the human rights complaint in a way that is relatively informal.
If you would like a copy of the Complaints Management Framework, contact us on 1800 623 946.
We will aim to resolve your complaint as soon as possible however depending upon the nature of the complaint this may vary. You will be provided with updates during the investigation of your complaint.
