Willing to Work: National Inquiry into Employment Discrimination Against Older Australians and Australians with Disability

Australian Human Rights Commission

The National Inquiry examines practices, attitudes and Commonwealth laws that deny or diminish equal participation in employment of older Australians and Australians with disability; and makes recommendations as to Commonwealth laws that should be amended, or action that should be taken to address employment discrimination against older Australians and Australians with disability.

The Inquiry aims to consult as widely as possible with older Australians, Australians with disability and their carers and families, business, employer and employee organisations, advocacy groups and stakeholders in order to hear their views, experiences and suggestions for change.

The Inquiry will seek a wide range of views through a call for submissions and a series of consultations and round-tables to be held across Australia.

The Inquiry will base its findings and recommendations on extensive quantitative and qualitative research that it gathers through the process, as well as on academic and social policy research.

The Inquiry will report on its findings and recommendations by July 2016.
