Equal opportunities.

Equal opportunities.

Effective employers encourage a diverse and inclusive organisation where everyone is treated fairly, differences are accepted, and people treat each other with tolerance and respect.

Under various pieces of anti-discrimination law, you cannot discriminate or treat someone less favourably because of:

  • race or skin colour
  • sex or sexual orientation
  • age
  • physical or mental disability
  • marital status
  • family or carer responsibilities
  • pregnancy
  • religion or political opinion
  • national extraction or social origin

Discrimination is not a simple matter and may be direct – against the person – or indirect – where rules or procedures unfairly disadvantage a person. While these laws set out the minimum standards for equality, they are complex and you should always seek advice to clear up any doubts.

Employsure advisers can help you foster equal opportunities and follow Australian workplace legislation. For peace of mind, please call our 24 hour Advice Line now on 1300 651 415.
