Travel Sisters Exemption Application - Nov 2009

Travel Sisters applied for an exemption from provisions in the Equal Opportunity Act 1995 to enable them to conduct women only travel tours. The Tribunal was required to assess the application in light of the Charter.

The Commission made submissions opposing the granting of the exemption because the applicant had not provided sufficient evidence to justify the limitation on the human right to recognition and equality before the law in section 8 of the Charter.

The Tribunal did not grant the exemption, not being satisfied that the limitations were reasonable or necessary.
