For individuals

Individuals’ rights are protected in Victoria by four laws: the Equal Opportunity Act 2010, the Racial and Religious Tolerance Act 2001, the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities and the Change or Suppression (Conversion) Practices Prohibition Act 2021. These laws prohibit discrimination, sexual harassment, racial and religious vilification, victimisation and change or suppression practices. 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.

The Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission stands on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri and Boonwurrung Peoples of the Kulin Nation. We recognise their cultures, histories, diversity and deep connection to this land and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Sovereignty has never been ceded – this land always was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
