Discrimination Law and Practice
OverviewThis is a revised edition of the seminal Australian textbook dealing exclusively with discrimination law and its practical application. Its concise account marries clarity with depth and is suitable for all whose work or interest brings them into contact with discrimination law -- lawyers, business people, human resources and industrial relations staff, advocates and students. Thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the rapid development of discrimination law and practice since 1998, this second edition features expanded coverage, especially of the vital areas of definitions of discrimination; sexual harassment; vilification and racial hatred, together with the mechanisms for enforcing federal discrimination laws. A new chapter examines the remedies obtained by those who pursue claims through the courts and the range and type of orders usually made.
