49ZA   Industrial organisations
(1)  It is unlawful for an industrial organisation to discriminate against a person who is not a member of the industrial organisation on the ground of his or her responsibilities as a carer:
(a)  by refusing or failing to accept the person’s application for membership, or
(b)  in the terms on which it is prepared to admit the person to membership.
(2)  It is unlawful for an industrial organisation to discriminate against a person who is a member of the industrial organisation on the ground of his or her responsibilities as a carer:
(a)  by denying the person access, or limiting the person’s access, to any benefit provided by the organisation, or
(b)  by depriving the person of membership or varying the terms of the person’s membership, or
(c)  by subjecting the person to any other detriment.
(3)  Nothing in subsection (2) (a) renders it unlawful to discriminate against a person on the ground of the person’s responsibilities as a carer where, because of the person’s responsibilities as a carer, the person requires the benefit to be provided in a special manner and the benefit cannot be provided in that manner by the industrial organisation without unjustifiable hardship to it.
