Benetas welcomes Human Rights Commission inquiry into age and disability discrimination in employment

Benetas CEO, Sandra Hills, welcomes the Federal Government’s decision to request the Human Rights Commission conduct an inquiry into employment discrimination against older Australians and people living with a disability.

“This is a positive move that will raise awareness of the extent of age and disability discrimination in our community.

“It will also provide an avenue for greater discussion and understanding of the day to day employment experiences of older Australians and those living with a disability,” Ms Hills said.
