Human Rights Fact Sheets

The Human Rights scrutiny team, Civil Law and Regulatory Branch in the Justice and Community Safety Directorate has prepared guidance for ACT Government officers about each of the human rights in the Human Rights Act. These fact sheets are primarily designed to educate ACT government officers, who have a role, in the development or application of legislation, policy or programs, about human rights in the ACT. The materials are to assist in identifying and addressing potential human rights issues in the development of legislation. The information in these sheets can inform the preparation of explanatory statements.

These fact sheets are for guidance only and do not constitute legal advice. These should not be viewed as either determinative or exhaustive.

Individual guides for each of the rights are also available for download below:
