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. Discrimination against a woman because she is pregnant can also be sex discrimination. Sexual harassment is also against the law. Race Because of your colour, nationality, descent, ethnic or ethno-religious background. Age People think you are too young or too old for the job. Marital status You are single, married or living in a de facto relationship. Homosexual or lesbian You are gay or lesbian or someone thinks you are gay or lesbian. Disability You have a disability, had one in the past or may have one in the future, or someone thinks you have a disability. This includes physical, intellectual and psychiatric disabilities, learning and emotional disorders. Transgender You are transgender (you live or seek to live as a member of the opposite gender (sex) to your birth gender) or others think you are transgender.
