Half of women and a quarter of men have experienced discrimination in the workplace because of family obligations. Associate Professor Susan Ainsworth told ABC News 24 that there were some positives in the latest survey by the Human Rights Commission.

Men have for the first time been included in the survey, and Associate Professor Ainsworth said that this is a positive move which recognises that this is not just a woman's issue but a family and societal issue.

Susan Ainsworth is an Associate Professor in Organisational Studies in the Department of Management and Marketing, Faculty of Business and Economics.
