Workplace Discrimination in the ACT

Residents of the ACT will be covered by the anti-discrimination provisions contained in both ACT and federal legislation for any instances of workplace discrimination.  The ACT Discrimination Act 1991 and Human Rights Commission Act 2005 are the main pieces of legislation relevant to workplace discrimination in the ACT. 

Workers may also be covered by the federal Fair Work Act 2009, which contains anti-discrimination provisions at section 351.  If the discriminatory conduct results in termination of employment, a claim must be brought to the Fair Work Commission within 21 days of the date of dismissal.
