Will the Bill allow religious exemptions for commercial businesses?

Will the Bill allow religious exemptions for commercial businesses?

A:

No. All commercial businesses and other non-religious organisations must continue to uphold current anti-discrimination laws and cannot unlawfully discriminate against couples, including same-sex couples.

This means that commercial businesses or individual employees working at these businesses cannot discriminate against a customer on the basis of their race, skin colour, sex, religion, political opinion, nationality, age, marital or relationship status, impairment, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, intersex status or other protected ground.
