Equal Opportunity

VCAT can hear and decide cases about unlawful discrimination, sexual harassment, victimisation or vilification under the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 or the Racial and Religious Tolerance Act 2001 as part of our Human Rights List A List is an area in VCAT that deals with cases of a similar nature. For example, the Residential Tenancies List decides cases between tenants and landlords, and the Civil Claims List handles disputes about buying or selling goods and services. .We can also grant and revoke exemptions under the Equal Opportunity Act 2010. Exemptions allow conduct that would otherwise be prohibited discrimination.
