Clarification Sought on Change and Suppression Legislation

In a joint  letter with Australian Association of Christian Schools to the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commissioner (VEOHRC), CSA has sought clarification for schools on the recently passed Change or Suppression (Conversion) Practices Prohibition Act 2021.

While the Act is not expected to commence until early 2022 given the vagueness of many aspects of the Act and conflicting statements made in relation to its effect we have put a range of detailed scenarios to the VEOHRC as the agency with primary responsibility for enforcement.
