For individuals

Individuals’ rights are protected in Victoria by three laws: the Equal Opportunity Act 2010, the Racial and Religious Tolerance Act 2001 and the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities. These laws prohibit discrimination, sexual harassment, racial and religious vilification, and victimisation. They also outline how human rights should be protected and promoted. The Commission can give you information so you can better understand your rights, or help you resolve a complaint.
