Queensland's Human Rights Act 2019 requires public entities to act compatibly with human rights when making a decision or acting. The Act protects 23 human rights in law.

Organisations contracted to provide services to the public on behalf of the Queensland Government are included under the Act as public entities and as such they need to make decisions and act compatibly with human rights.

This involves considering humans rights in a broad range of activities from administrative and human resource decisions, to policy, procedure and service delivery decisions. It also includes handling complaints that relate to human rights.

There are a range of training, resources and information for the sector available. Keep up-to-date on events, webinars and training on Community Door by clicking on 'news' under the 'in this section' on this page.
