What happens once the Commissioner has made a decision?

The Act also requires the Commissioner to publish notice of any grant, renewal or revocation of an exemption in the Tasmanian Government Gazette.

The Act allows for a person to apply for a review of the Commissioner's decision to grant or renew or refuse to grant or renew an exemption. The review is conducted by the Anti-Discrimination Tribunal.

'Applications for Review' must be in writing to the Tribunal and made within 28 days of notice in the Gazette or after receipt of the written statement of the Commissioner's reasons for the refusal.

On receipt of an application for review, the Tribunal may review the decision of the Commissioner and:

  • confirm that the Commissioner made a correct decision;
  • or quash the decision and direct the Commissioner to take such action as the Tribunal considers appropriate.

'Applications for Review' are to be sent to:
