Workplace Discrimination in Victoria
People facing workplace discrimination in Victoria are covered by both State and federal anti-discrimination laws, and therefore may have several options to choose from when deciding to take legal action against discriminatory conduct. The definition of workplace discrimination in Victoria is fairly uniform across the various Victorian and Commonwealth laws. Discrimination is the less favourable treatment of a person who possesses a protected attribute (which includes gender/sex, sexuality, race and age) than a person who does not have that protected attribute. The less favourable treatment must be on the basis of the protected attribute in order to constitute discrimination; however it does not have to be the sole reason for the less favourable treatment.
