Exposure Draft Anti-Discrimination Amendment Bill 2022

Exposure Draft Bill

The Department of the Attorney-General and Justice (the Department) has released the draft Anti‑Discrimination Amendment Bill 2022 for public consultation (the Exposure Draft Bill).

The Exposure Draft Bill contains a number of proposed reforms to the Anti-Discrimination Act 1992 (the Act), which are the result of a comprehensive review of the Act by the Department in 2017‑2018. The reforms aim to ensure the protections offered by the Act meet the contemporary needs of people living in the Territory and address areas where concerns have been raised with the operation of the current legislation.
