Haircut discrimination

A Brisbane suburban shopping centre was at the centre of an anti-discrimination row, after forcing a local barber not to serve women.

Jimmy Rod’s, at The Gap Village shopping centre, had a clause in their new lease stipulating they were exclusively to cut men’s hair only, so as not to compete with 3 other salons in the complex.

It forced them to turn away a regular female customer who complained to the Anti-Discrimination Commission of Queensland.

How can the centre put this into a lease, and how different is it to a Women’s only gym or an all boys school?

Qld Law Society Vice-President, Bill Potts, explains the difference.
