The Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission has launched the final report of the Same-Sex: Same Entitlements inquiry.  The report was tabled in Parliament on 21 June 2007.

The report:

  • identifies laws which discriminate against same-sex couples and their children in the area of financial and work-related entitlements
  • describes the impact of that discrimination on same-sex couples and their children
  • makes recommendations intended to ensure that all families in Australia are treated equally
