Queensland Human Rights Act 2018: Queensland Parliament, Legal Affairs & Community Safety Committee

November 2018

PWDA supports the Human Rights framework proposed in the Bill, however, in order to be truly effective the Human Rights Act must be legally enforceable. The Bill should give people the means to take legal action should they be treated unfairly. In addition, the Bill needs to guarantee provisions for people with disability to ensure effective and full access to justice and equality before the law, as equal citizens, in any form of legal proceedings. In its current form, the Bill does not effectively guarantee these rights.
