For public sector

The Victorian public sector is bound by laws that give guidance on how to make Victoria a safer, fairer and more inclusive state. These laws include the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities, the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 and the Racial and Religious Tolerance Act 2001. Together, these laws set out the rights and entitlements of the people of Victoria. They also identify the responsibilities of public authorities to protect and promote human rights, and eliminate discrimination, sexual harassment, and racial and religious vilification.
