Giving a voice to age discrimination complainants in federal proceedings

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

No age discrimination complaint made pursuant to the Age Discrimination Act (Cth) has been successfully litigated since the legislation was first introduced in 2004. This article examines the dispute resolution procedure use to resolve age discrimination complaints in the federal system, with particular reference to alternative dispute resolution processes. It considers the outcomes of the complaints handling processes undertaken at the Australian Human Rights Commission and a selection of litigated outcomes, and the interrelationship of these processes. The article identifies potential impediments to age discrimination complainants having a voice in such processes, and explores ways of diminishing their impact.
