Premier to reintroduce defeated Equal Opportunity Bill
The opposition have accused the Government of trying to overturn more than 150 years of Victorian parliamentary tradition by pushing through a previously defeated bill.
Meanwhile, a protest rally has been called in Melbourne to coincide with the reintroduction of the Bill which will make it lawful for some organisations to deny someone a job on the basis of their gender, sexual orientation, religion, marital status, parental status or gender identity.
