About the consultation

​​​The Social Security Minister has proposed draft regulations to introduce a law to protect against age discrimination. 

We want to know what you think about a number of policy issues, including:

  • ​the scope of protection against age discrimination
  • how to deal with direct age discrimination under the law
  • any exceptions we should make in the regulations that are not considered to be age discrimination (eg ​retirement, pensions, and age-related concessions and services)

​The minister will take into account any comments received before finalising the draft regulations and lodging a proposition for States debate.​

The regulations are expected to come into force on 1 September 2016.
