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

Invitation to Older Australians and Community Organisations

The Hon. Susan Ryan AO, Age and Disability Discrimination Commissioner, invites you to participate in a consultation as part of the National Inquiry into Employment Discrimination against Older Australians and Australians with Disability.

The consultation in Geelong will be held on Wednesday 29 July 2015, from 1:30pm–3:00pm.

The Australian Human Rights Commission would like to hear from individuals who have experienced age discrimination in employment, while looking for work, or those who would like to work, as well as community organisations, service providers and policy experts to participate in a consultation.

The consultations are an opportunity for those people who have experienced employment discrimination on the basis of age to share their views and experiences with the National Inquiry team, who will be facilitating the consultation.

Community organisations are also invited to share their views and experiences working with older Australians, individuals who have experienced age discrimination in the workplace and recommendations for change.

Please see the Issues Papers on the Inquiry website for further background information on the National Inquiry and questions to consider during the consultation. Further details on the objectives, methodology and timeframe for the National Inquiry are available at https://www.humanrights.gov.au/willing-to-work.
