SEX DISCRIMINATION ACT 1984 - SECT 7A

Discrimination on the ground of family responsibilities

                   For the purposes of this Act, an employer discriminates against an employee on the ground of the employee's family responsibilities if:

                     (a)  the employer treats the employee less favourably than the employer treats, or would treat, a person without family responsibilities in circumstances that are the same or not materially different; and

                     (b)  the less favourable treatment is by reason of:

                              (i)  the family responsibilities of the employee; or

                             (ii)  a characteristic that appertains generally to persons with family responsibilities; or

                            (iii)  a characteristic that is generally imputed to persons with family responsibilities.
