From 12 December 2023, the Australian Human Rights Council (AHRC) will have statutory powers to undertake investigations, and enforce the new positive duty to prevent sex discrimination and sexual harassment.

The AHRC has published its Guidelines for Complying with the Positive Duty under the Sex Discrimination Act 1984 (Cth). The AHRC will be using the Guidelines to assess compliance with their duty to take reasonable and proportionate measures to eliminate (as far as possible) sex discrimination and sexual harassment.
