Résumé/Citation: The Act requires designated employers (private employers with 100 or more employees in Australia, and institutions of higher education) to develop affirmative action programmes. These programmes shall be designed to ensure that appropriate measures and action are taken to eliminate discrimination against women and to promote equal opportunity for them. The contents of the programme shall include policy statements, designation of persons responsible for implementing the programme, consultation with trade unions and employees, collection and recording of statistics, examination of policies and practices tending to discriminate, establishment of quantitative objectives and estimates, and monitoring and evaluation. Employers are required to report on these matters. The Act sets up the post of Director of Affirmative Action, whose functions and powers are defined.
