The Commission’s preliminary view - 2 March 2018

On 2 March 2018, the Australian Human Rights Commission issued its preliminary view in this matter. The preliminary view can be found here and a summary of the preliminary view can be found here.

In accordance with its guidelines, the Commission will sometimes issue a preliminary view on an application for temporary exemptions before it reaches a final view. The purpose of a preliminary view is to provide procedural fairness and to give interested parties the opportunity to respond to the Commission’s preliminary findings before it makes a final decision. If any interested parties wish to respond to the Commission’s preliminary view, submissions are sought by 16 March 2018. Submissions should preferably be made in electronic format, and emailed to legal@humanrights.gov.au.
