Karen and Sarah were pleased to have the opportunity to meet with Anti-Discrimination Commissioner, Sally Sievers, to discuss the process to modernise the Anti-Discrimination Act.  The proposed amendments include discrimination based on accommodation status and socio-economic disadvantage as well as strengthening of other areas, such as sexual harassment through the inclusion of bystander intervention provisions and a wider scope for assistance animals. This is a great opportunity for interested Territorians to have their say.

Proposed Anti-Discrimination Act amendments are now open for public consultation – Submissions due by 12 August
