Targeted recruitment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

An Indigenous Engagement Survey conducted by the Business Council of Australia (BCA) in 2014 revealed that almost 70 per cent of respondent companies had Indigenous employment strategies and most respondents also indicated they planned to recruit Indigenous employees in 2015.

This guideline produced by the Australian Human Rights Commission will help employers to use the special measure’ provisions in the federal Racial Discrimination Act 1975 (Cth) and state and territory discrimination laws, to target Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people for recruitment.

This is an important resource for employers seeking to advance the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
