What is the Sex Discrimination Act?

The Sex Discrimination Act 1984 (Cth) (the SDA) makes it against the law to treat you unfairly because of your: sex; marital status; family responsibilities; because you are pregnant or might become pregnant or because you are breastfeeding.

The SDA also makes sexual harassment against the law.

As of 1 August 2013 the SDA also makes it against the law to treat you unfairly because of your sexual orientation; marital or relationship status (including same-sex de facto relationships); gender identity and intersex status.

The Australian Human Rights Commission will be able to accept complaints of discrimination on the ground of sexual orientation about things that have happened on or after the commencement date.
