Issue 2 topics include:
3. Ageing and Employment Policies, Australia
The OECD Employment, Labour and Social Affairs Committee initiated a thematic review of policies which aim to improve labour market prospects for older workers. The policies reviewed covered both supply-side and demand-side aspects. The report on Australia is one in a series of around 20 OECD country reports that will be published as part of the older workers thematic review.
Each country report analyses the main existing barriers to the employment of older people and assesses the effectiveness of policies in removing these barriers. The reports also present a set of recommendations on measures that government and social partners should implement.
The Executive Summary is available from the OECD web site at <www.oecd.org/dataoecd/30/47/35050252.pdf>.

The plan is available from the AIHW web site <www.aihw.gov.au>.
