The Queensland Human Rights Commission has been conducting a review of the state’s Anti-Discrimination Act. Volunteering Queensland provided a brief submission in response to the draft legislation. The key focus of our response was to welcome the inclusion of work done “on a voluntary or unpaid basis” under the formal definition of “work” which would be covered by the updated and more comprehensive anti-discrimination provisions contained within the draft legislation and encourage that this be retained in the final version of the legislation that is submitted to the Parliament.

More details about the review and the draft legislation can be found at this link: Anti-Discrimination Bill 2024 consultation | Department of Justice and Attorney-General.
