In this response to Burt Neuborne's Who's Afraid of the Human Rights Commission, the author views Neuborne's proposal as representing an inevitable shift in the Commission's limited resources to more preventative measures in combating discrimination. This article argues that Neuborne's approach sacrifices the interests of individual victims of discrimination by focusing Commission resources on employer-centered plans for rights discrimination. The article outlines six drawbacks of the Neuborne model, and concludes that more minor changes will allow a proper balance between allocating resources for post- and pre- event occurrences of discrimination.
