Discrimination Discrimination is treating someone unfairly because they happen to belong to a particular group of people. In NSW many types of discrimination are against the law. Discrimination laws help give everyone an equal opportunity. The following types of discrimination are illegal: Carers' responsibilities You need to care for or support a child or other 'immediate family member'. Sex You are a woman or because you are a man.
