Submission in Response to the Consolidation of Commonwealth Anti-Discrimination Laws

Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Bill

A prosperous and cohesive society cannot afford to overlook the ability of all age groups to make contributions, both financially and socially. National Seniors understands that discrimination is widespread especially within recruitment to the workplace. Furthermore, age discrimination is a concept that cannot be ignored and greater efforts are required within the policy making process to address and overcome it.

National Seniors appreciates the opportunity to provide comments on the Draft Legislation Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Bill 2012 (The Bill) which consolidates the Age Discrimination Act 2004, the Disability Discrimination Act 1992, the Racial Discrimination Act 1975, the Sex Discrimination Act 1984 and the Australian Human Rights Commission Act 1986.
