Victimisation is a very serious form of discrimination because it is an offence, that is, it can result in a prison sentence. Victimisation most commonly occurs when, instead of helping you with an experience of discrimination, a person makes things more difficult for you.

For example, if you were working as a disability support worker and management tried to stop you from making a complaint about abuse and neglect of a client that you had witnessed, this would amount to victimisation.
