Equal Opportunity in NSW Public Employment

In 1980 the NSW Anti-Discrimination Act was amended to include Part 9A which requires scheduled authorities, including universities, to:

  1. ensure the absence of discrimination in employment on the grounds covered by the Act, and
  2. promote equal employment opportunity for women, members of racial or ethnic minority groups, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and people with a disability.

The Act requires scheduled organisations to report annually on the progress of their equal employment opportunity programs to the Director of Equal Opportunity in Public Employment.
