By Administrative Law and Human Rights Section

Discrimination 

0 Comments


The LIV has reiterated its call for a national human rights charter over the Religious Discrimination Bill.

The LIV is concerned that the Second Exposure Draft of the Religious Discrimination Bill 2019 has privileged religious expression over discrimination protections and patient health needs.

The memo refers to its previous feedback to the First Exposure Draft (attached), and discusses implications on the health and sporting sector. The memo also makes several health-based recommendations, and reiterates its previous recommendation that the government should focus on drafting a national rights charter that includes religious freedom.
