DISCRIMINATION

DDiscrimination occurs when a person is treated unfairly or less favourably than another person in the same or similar circumstances. Discrimination can be direct or indirect, and generally takes the form of exclusion or rejection from something.

The Human Rights Act 1993 protects people in New Zealand from unfair discrimination in a number of areas. It looks to protect human rights in line with United Nations conventions.
