A number of Commonwealth Acts provide for conciliation to settle complaints relating to discrimination and human rights. The Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission (HREOC) is the national anti-discrimination body, established in 1986 by the Commonwealth Parliament to administer federal law relating to human rights and discrimination infringements.
The role of the HREOC is to receive, investigate and conciliate complaints under the following Acts:
(1) Racial Discrimination Act 1975 (Cth);
(2) Sex Discrimination Act 1984 (Cth);
(3) Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth); and
(4) Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission Act 1986 (Cth).
We cover all aspects of Human Rights law.
