Review of the Equal Opportunity Act 1984
Extensive changes to the Equal Opportunity Act 1984
were recommended following a comprehensive review of the Act in 2007, the first since its enactment in 1985. The Review attracted nearly 600 individual and 90 organisational submissions, with the 76-page report referred to in State Parliament by the then Attorney General Jim McGinty on Thursday May 24, 2007.
The review recommends introducing a number of new grounds of unlawful discrimination, including breastfeeding, bullying and irrelevant criminal or medical record.
