The Law Reform Commission of Western Australia's (LRCWA) has released its final report on the The Equal Opportunity Act 1984 (WA) making 163 recommendations which the Government has broadly accepted.
AACS is concerned that the report recommends restricting the ability of Christian schools to employ Christian staff across all roles by introducing 'inherent requirements' and 'reasonable and proportionate' tests, similar to recent changes to the Victorian Equal Opportunity Act 2010. If this recommendaiton is acted upon by the Government, Christian schools would only be able to expect certain employees, such as the Principal or Chaplain, to be a Christian when applying for a job in a Christian school.
We need your help to let the Western Australian government know how Christian schools and their communities feel about the recommendations in the report.
