I saw an advertisement on television that really offended me - can I complain about it?
The Equal Opportunity Act does not cover advertisements for products or events.
It only covers employment advertisements and advertisements about the way goods and services are provided.
If you are offended by the content of product advertisements you can complain to the media outlet concerned, or to the Advertising Standards Bureau.
I heard an advertisement for a nightclub that said women could get in for $15 while men had to pay $30. Isn't that sex discrimination?
It is an offence under the Equal Opportunity Act 1984 to advertise an intention to discriminate unless you have an exemption from the South Australian Civil and Administrative Tribunal.
The advertisement you heard could therefore be discriminatory and both the club and radio station could be liable.
I saw a job advertisement which said preference would be given to people of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander origin. Isn't this discrimination?
It is an offence under the Equal Opportunity Act 1984 to advertise employment or goods and services for sale in a discriminatory way, unless you have an exemption from the South Australian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, or are using a special measure.
Advertisements like this usually indicate that there is a special need to provide employment or services for a particular disadvantaged group in the community.
