The Sex Discrimination and Fair Work (Respect at Work) Amendment Bill 2021 was introduced on 24 June 2021. If passed, the Bill will amend the Fair Work Act 2009 (FW Act) and the Sex Discrimination Act 1984 (SD Act) to introduce a number of the legislative reforms recommended in the Respect@Work Report published by the Australian Human Rights Commission and endorsed (in part) by the Morrison government.
