Discrimination is when you are treated differently or unfairly because of a characteristic about you, such as your:

  • race
  • sex
  • age
  • religious belief or activity
  • impairment
  • parenthood.

It is against the law to do this in certain areas of life, such as your workplace, and when accessing goods, services and facilities. Read the Anti-Discrimination Act 1992.

Go to the Anti-Discrimination Commission website to find out more about:

  • what you can do if you are discriminated against
  • when and where it is unlawful
  • training staff on discrimination
  • preventing and managing discrimination.
