What’s it about?

The Australian Federal Government has passed numerous laws which aim to protect people from discrimination within the workplace. These include the:

  • Sex Discrimination Act 1984 (Cth);
  • Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth);
  • Age Discrimination Act 2004 (Cth);
  • Racial Discrimination Act 1975 (Cth); and
  • Australian Human Rights Commission Act 1986 (Cth).

These laws, alongside other state-based anti-discrimination legislation, are the primary source of EEO obligations. Accordingly, employers who hire, manage or dismiss employees must not discriminate based on a variety of attributes

Employers who promote EEO attract more diverse workers, improve worker productivity and promote a healthy workplace culture.
