Fact Sheet: Better freedoms or bigger burden?

On 29 August 2019, the Attorney-General released exposure drafts of three draft bills, which together form a legislative package on religious freedom. On 10 December 2019, the Prime Minister and the Attorney-General released second exposure drafts of the three bills.

SACOSS, together with our colleagues at ACOSS, along with a number of other peak bodies and industry groups, have raised a number of concerns about the exposure draft and its likely impacts on our workplaces and on broader community relations.

This Factsheet provides detail on the Bill’s restrictions on businesses and community sector organisations, recommended alternatives to the Bill and courses of action for organisations.
