My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.
If you are being refused the right to tender then you can claim discrimination. The mere fact that you know this other person should not affect you.
Do you have anything in writing or is it simply verbal?
Is there any way you can get evidence about it, e.g. something in writing, witness that heard this?
It is anticompetitive and you can take it to the ACCC and also discrimination but you need the evidence.
You should get written statements from them and also draft your own and then speak to a solicitor in QLD that practices in this area. The witnesses have to be prepared to go to court and support you. Giving a statement is not enough.
This is your starting point.
Reporting them to the ACCC will cause an investigation.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance?
