Abstract

There are growing implications, for the operation of businesses, from international human rights. Many international standards are enacted as Australian law – eg. prohibiting discrimination on gender, race, age and other grounds; outlawing corruption and bribery; criminalising trafficking – and compliance with these is a matter of Australian statutory, administrative and constitutional law. But there are increasing roles and legal implications of international human rights standards regardless of Australian domestic law. This article summarises the key documents and recent developments.
