Outcome of inquiry allowing religious schools to hire based on faith pushed back by eight months

The Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC) says it is “seriously concerned” about an eight-month delay on the outcome of an inquiry into legal exceptions allowing religious schools to discriminate against LGBTQ+ students and teachers.

The Australian Law Reform Commission’s (ALRC) final report was due to be handed to attorney general Mark Dreyfus today, but was pushed back late yesterday to 31 December.

PIAC director of policy and advocacy, Alastair Lawrie said any delay that left LGBTQ+ students and staff open to discrimination was troubling.
