Age is not a use by date

This snapshot has been developed by the Equal Opportunity Commission to better understand the impacts of age, and other types of discrimination, on people living in WA over the age of 55.

Through our enquiry line at the Commission we believe age discrimination is prevalent in WA, but as it often difficult to demonstrate discrimination has occurred for mature aged people who are already very vulnerable, the onus of proof remaining with the complainant is still a large hurdle.
