What is this document about?
This is booklet 1 in a series of 4 booklets.
Booklet 1: About the National Inquiry and how to tell us what you think
Booklet 2: About employment discrimination and older Australians
Booklet 3: About employment discrimination and Australians with disability
Booklet 4: About discrimination and what you can do if you experience it.
The booklets are part of a large review we are doing. This review is called the National Inquiry.
The review looks at employment discrimination against:
- older Australians
- Australians with disability.
Discrimination is when you are treated unfairly because of your race, beliefs, sexuality, disability or age.
We want to know what everyone thinks.
We want to hear your:
- suggestions for change.
This will help us make suggestions on how more older people, and people with disability, can take part in the workforce.
The workforce includes all the people who are working at the moment, and all the people who are looking for jobs.
This booklet explains the National Inquiry and how you can tell us what you think.
You can learn how to tell us what you think on page 9.
We’ve included some things to think about at the end of this booklet. We’ve also included some things to think about in each of the booklets.
They may help you to work out what you want to say if you take part in the National Inquiry.
