Anti-Discrimination and Privacy Law
The aim of anti-discrimination laws is to ensure a person’s right to be treated fairly, regardless of their sex, race or age or of the fact they may be affected by disability or impairment. While a relatively simple concept, the laws protecting these rights are continually expanding and becoming more complex. Anti-discrimination laws can affect people whether they are applying for a job, enrolling into university, renting a house, applying for credit or dealing with government.
Roberts Nehmer McKee regularly advises individuals, businesses and government owned agencies in respect of their rights and obligations under anti-discriminations laws.
