Ella Ingram v QBE Insurance (Australia) Ltd

In Ingram v QBE Insurance (Australia) Ltd (Human Rights) Member Dea of the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal determined the application of an exception to the general principle that it is unlawful to discriminate. The Equal Opportunities Act 2010 (Vic) and the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) allows insurers to lawfully discriminate if that discrimination is based on actuarial or statistical data.
