Racial Discrimination

Under discrimination legislation, race is defined as colour, descent, ethnic or national origin or nationality.


Direct racial discrimination occurs when a person is treated less favourably than another person, in the same or similar circumstances, based on their race or because a relative or associate is of a different racial identity.


Indirect discrimination occurs when an apparently neutral rule, policy, practice or procedure has a negative effect on a substantially higher proportion of people of a particular race, compared to people of another race, and the rule is unreasonable under the circumstances. This can occur even when there is no intention to discriminate.
