About this Project
PIAC maintains one of Australia’s leading practices in discrimination law, with a history of successful test cases.
Our recent work has focused on systemic discrimination against people with a disability and sex discrimination.
We have had particular success working with people with a disability to achieve accessible services, such as public transport, education, insurance, media and online services.
PIAC’s mental health and insurance project has been at the forefront of major changes to industry practices to ensure fairer treatment of people with mental health conditions seeking insurance.
