  • Being sacked because you were sick or injured.
  • Not being hired, or being sacked, because of your race, colour, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy or religion.
  • Unpaid work trials for any period beyond what’s reasonably required for you to demonstrate the skills required for the job.
  • Receiving goods or services instead of money.

Psychologists in PerthSeeing a psychologist in Australia often requires that you first visit a GP (doctor). They will then refer you to a psychologist if necessary. 

In many cases, fees for seeing a psychologist may be covered by your Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). Your health cover pays for some, but not all of the psychologist fees.
