Summary

This book, which is the first major text in the field directed to both legal practitioners and law students, contains a detailed analysis of Australian anti-discrimination law as well as extracts from all of the major cases and the writings of leading commentators. It incorporates the many changes to the law since the first edition was published in 2008 and includes new chapters dealing with positive duties, victimisation and protections against discrimination in industrial relations laws.

The book includes a comprehensive examination of the difficult concepts of direct and indirect discrimination as well as coverage of the major grounds of unlawful discrimination, such as race, sex and disability.

The book records the history of the major pieces of anti-discrimination legislation, examines important international developments and includes numerous suggestions for reform. The book will be of interest to legal and human rights practitioners as well as students. The chapters in the areas of procedure and remedies will be particularly important to those people practicing in the field.
