"Workplace discrimination - it's not on" is our simple message in a new poster for workplace noticeboards and a meme for social sharing.
Sometimes, all that's needed to stop discrimination in its tracks is a public display making it clear to everyone what is not acceptable.
When that doesn't work - call your union.
What is workplace discrimination?
[Text from the ASU poster]
The Australian Human Rights Commission Act 1986 prohibits discrimination in public and private sector employment on the following grounds:
- impairment, mental, intellectual, psychiatric and physical
- marital status
- medical record
- political opinion
- criminal record
- race, colour, nationality, national extraction
- social origin
- sexual orientation
- trade union activity
If you believe you are being discriminated against at work, don’t delay, contact your union delegate or ASU Branch for advice: www.asu.asn.au/contact
