Discrimination Law

In Australia, several laws protect people from being discriminated against on grounds of age, disability, race, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy, breastfeeding, race, religious or political conviction, age, impairment, and family responsibility or family status.

Complaints about discrimination under federal laws can be made to the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission at:
