This case concerned an application for a review of a decision of the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission by Yin Cheng Jin, where the Queensland Human Rights Commission rejected a complaint by Mr Jin under the Anti-Discrimination Act 1991 (Qld). The Human Rights Act 2019 (Qld) was raised briefly when mentioning how in the previous decision the Human Rights Commissioner advised that neither the Anti-Discrimination Act 1991 (Qld) or Human Rights Act 2019 (Qld) were breached, causing the complaint to lapse. Otherwise, there was no substantive discussion of human rights.
