Function 2: The Commissioner may institute, promote or assist in research, the collection of data and the dissemination of information relating to discrimination on the grounds to which this Act applies.

Enquiries and complaints data is routinely collected and maintained.

The OCEO, along with Commonwealth and State and Territory authorities in equal opportunity, workers compensation and work health and safety, is assisting the Australian Human Rights Commission with research into workplace sexual harassment.

It also collaborates with universities and other research bodies to assist them with research questions.

Additional research projects will occur on an as needs basis in the medium-term to ensure that reprioritised functions and services are available to South Australians, and that the office operates within its budget.
