Age Discrimination in the Australian Defence Force
HREOC Report No. 8, 2000
HRC Report No. 8 arose from complaints by three prospective entrants and one serving member of the ADF. The complaints related to various positions for which the upper age limit was 35. In each case the age distinctions complained of were found to be discriminatory and not within the "inherent requirements of the position". The Commissioner recommended that the ADF apologise to one complainant, compensate three of them and remove the discriminatory age requirements.
The report is available as a PDF document (240k) and in Word Format in five parts:
