Victorian Equal Opportunity & Human Rights Commission
Everyone deserves fair treatment. However, the majority of complaints to the Commission are about people being treated unfairly because of their disability. Considering that most people will have a disability at some stage because of injury, illness or ageing, we should be making sure society is more welcoming to people of all abilities. Victoria has laws to protect people with disability from discrimination, and to ensure that everyone can contribute meaningfully to society.
