Last month, Queensland’s Attorney-General formally requested the Queensland Human Rights Commission to undertake a review of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1991 (QLD).
According to the Queensland Attorney-General, Shannon Fentiman, the review will ensure that the laws ‘better protect Queenslanders from discrimination, promote equality and meet international best practice’.
The review's Terms of Reference are available to read on the Commission’s website.
The Commission has indicated it will hold a submissions process to ask people and organisations their views about how the law should change. They are also planning to publish a discussion paper and hold a series of public consultations.
With the protections for Christian schools to employ staff who share their faith some of the most limited in the country we will be making some strong submissions to the review. We will continue to keep schools abreast of developments in the process.
