This unit replaced by 200654 Anti-Discrimination Law. This unit deals with the law and policy concerned with unlawful discrimination in Australia. The various grounds of unlawful discrimination in federal and NSW state legislation are examined together with the procedure for investigating and determining complaints. It deals with the promotion of equal opportunity goals through affirmative action programs and their limitations; and the nature of and legislative strategies for dealing with sexual harassment. It also covers the wide range of anti-discrimination laws and the emergence of private justice systems and equal opportunity grievance procedures to deal with complaints either as a preliminary or as an alternative to statute-based procedures.
