Access All Ages—Older Workers and Commonwealth Laws (ALRC Report 120) was tabled on 30 May 2013. 

The ALRC 'Age Barriers to Work' inquiry arose out of concerns about the implications of an ageing population and the recognition that expanding the workforce participation of older Australians may go some way to meeting such concerns. The ALRC was asked to identify what, if any, changes could be made to relevant Commonwealth legislation and legal frameworks to remove barriers. 

In this Final Report, the ALRC makes 36 targeted recommendations that capture some of the momentum for reform, complementing other work in the broader area of policy development affecting mature age people. The ALRC also gives voice to wider concerns where those have been highlighted throughout the Inquiry.
