What happens with your report?

Unia will analyse your situation to figure out how to help you.

Unia will first analyse whether it has the authority to process your report. If this is not the case, if possible, it will direct you to another specialised service. If the case falls within Unia’s competence, however, it will proceed with a more in-depth assessment of your situation.

Unia always favours reconciliation. This may involve contacting and interviewing all of the people involved in order to arrive at a constructive solution. There are many advantages to this type of mediation:

  • it is faster than a lawsuit;
  • you can receive recognition and/or compensation;
  • the perpetrator of the acts will become aware of his or her behaviour and structural measures can be put in place.

If mediation is not possible, with your consent, Unia may take legal action.

The solutions that are found for one particular person may be useful for other people who find themselves in the same situation. That is why Unia has created a library of solutions on its website. These include the solutions negotiated through Unia’s mediation, but also judicial rulings in discrimination cases, under the heading of jurisprudence. This also enables the antiracism and antidiscrimination legislation to be evaluated.
