The Human Rights Review Tribunal’s (Tribunal) jurisdiction extends to three distinct areas
of human rights law: unlawful discrimination under Part 4 of the Human Rights Act 1993 (HRA), interference with privacy under Part 8 of the Privacy Act 1993 (Privacy Act), and breaches of the health and disability services consumer code under Part 4 of the Health and Disability Commissioner Act 1994.

rights, and how they may be litigated in the Tribunal.
