Embracing equality. Submission to the NSW Attorney General on the Consolidation of Commonwealth Anti-Discrimination Laws Alternative formats available on request to PIAC - Contact PIAC
The NSW Attorney General sought community feedback on the proposed consolidation of Commonwealth anti-discrimination laws and the impact on NSW. PIAC’s submission focused on the complaints and compliance framework for discrimination including amendments to onus of proof, the creation of a no-cost jurisdiction, easing the standing requirements for organisations to make complaints. The submission also recommended extending protection from discrimination to additional attributes including religion, housing status and being a victim of domestic violence.
