Workplace Discrimination on the Basis of Religious Conviction: An Australian Perspective

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


This article examines the protections of the expression of religious conviction in the workplace in Australia. Employees are required to participate in alternative dispute resolution before a civil court can hear their claim. Consequently, a signi cant number of claims are settled or withdrawn before hearing. This is particu- larly so in relation to the ground of ‘religious belief or activity’; the body of case law is very small.
