Momentum Business and Human Rights Workshop – Advertorial
Friday, 22nd February 2008 at 8:47 am

Book now for the Momentum Business and Human Rights workshop in Melbourne on March 5th.

The workshop will include a briefing on the implications of the recently adopted Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities. This will be provided by a Victorian expert and is important for all employers and civil society groups.

While the Charter covers all ‘public authorities’ it may alter the way anyone’s workplace agreements are interpreted.

It will certainly broaden the scope of anti discrimination law. It makes public authorities – not just government departments but anyone delivering government-funded programs – accountable for human rights protection.

It will open up to judicial review decisions made about things like environment and planning, and how public money is allocated to benefit vulnerable groups. To be lawful, interference with one of the Charter’s protected rights – such as privacy, dignity, family life – must be "necessary in a democratic society". What does that mean? How will tribunals make and record their decisions, now that the Charter requires international human rights cases to be taken into account?

Join Momentum on 5 March 2008 in Melbourne at the Business and Human Rights workshop to hear about the Charter’s implications specifically for business. In addition, a leading international expert will provide a briefing on the importance of international human rights law for Australian law.

The workshop will be hosted by BHP Billiton. Numbers are strictly limited to ensure the interactive quality of the workshop.
