The ACT Law Reform Advisory Council is reviewing the ACT Discrimination Act 1991.
The ACT Law Reform Advisory Council is reviewing the ACT Discrimination Act 1991. The Act was innovative in its day, and still contains some features that are not found in most such laws but that commentators say are preferred, such as avoiding a ‘comparator’ test for proving discrimination. After over twenty years of operation it is appropriate that the content and operation of the law be reviewed, particularly in light of recent reforms in Victoria, and the recent (unsuccessful) process of consolidating federal discrimination laws. The review will engage in a process of public consultation, and submissions on the consultation paper are invited: see ‘Current inquiries’ at — www.lawreform.act.gov.au.
