The Australian Government has announced details regarding the project to consolidate Commonwealth anti‑discrimination laws into a single Act.  The Attorney-General, the Hon Nicola Roxon MP and the Minister for Finance and Deregulation, Senator the Hon Penny Wong, have released exposure draft legislation for the Human Rights and Anti‑Discrimination Bill 2012.

The Bill consolidates the 5 existing Commonwealth anti-discrimination acts into a single comprehensive law. The Bill was drafted following these key principles:

  • Lift differing levels of protections to the highest current standard, to resolve gaps and inconsistencies without diminishing protections.
  • Clearer and more efficient laws provide greater flexibility in their operation, with no substantial change in practical outcome.
  • Enhance protections where the benefits outweigh any regulatory impact.
  • Voluntary measures that business can take to assist their understanding of obligations and reduce occurrences of discrimination.
  • A streamlined complaints process, to make it more efficient to resolve disputes that do arise.

Further information on the consolidation project and the public consultation process will be placed on the website at www.ag.gov.au/antidiscrimination as it becomes available. Attached is  the exposure draft Bill and explanatory material, as well as a short fact sheet and the Ministers’ media release.

QTU members across Queensland have accepted the second enterprise bargaining
offer made by the government. After certification, the 2.7% per annum pay
increase will be backdated to 1 September and will be paid early in 2013. Details of Salary Scales are available here

Is the effect of the Christian church on society always benign?

 Is the effect of the Christian church on Society always benign?

 

Why is telling and acting on the truth so difficult? Four Character Test Traits in Truth-telling, from“Telling Truth to Kings” by Reinhold Schneider, each of which present a genuine text of character are: the wisdom and willingness to see the truth; the courage to speak the truth; the humility and honesty of mind to hear the truth; and finally, the will to act on the truth.

Which of the steps do you think are most challenging?

 

It is easy to think that the forces of liberalism that have been unleashed mean that we can no longer really affect the society in which we live – that it has actually slid down a
moral decline so long and so steep that no ground can be recovered.

What social change do you most want to see in your community/town/city?

How is the Christian ethos of your school making that more likely now, or in the future?
