Abstract

This submission focuses on the compatibility with human rights of the reported Government draft bill which would allow schools to enact rules that indirectly discriminate in order to uphold the doctrines of their religion. This provision would replace the existing provision allowing for direct discrimination against staff (‘LGBTIQ staff’) and students (‘LGBTIQ students’) but this provision is equally repugnant to international and domestic human rights law.
