Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Bill
The Commonwealth Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Bill Exposure Draft is the result of many years of consultations and reviews of anti-discrimination laws. The Senate Standing Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs was tasked with consulting and reporting on the exposure draft in November 2012. That process has been completed, with public consultation only taking place in Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne, notwithstanding that over 3000 submissions were received. The Committee tabled its Report on 21 February 2013.
