Sex Discrimination

By Aylward Game - Jul 18, 2013 Articles

The Federal government has recently passed Legislation which will amend the Sex Discrimination Act 1984. These changes will come into force once the amending Act has received royal assent. Once that formality has been completed then sexual orientation, gender identity and inter-sex status will become attributes that are protected from discrimination. In addition, same sex de facto couples will be within the protection of the marital status attribute which is already a protected attribute under this Act. Employers and Service providers will need to ensure that their policies and procedures are kept under review to ensure that they remain compliant with this updated legislation.
