What is Age Discrimination?

Did you know that surveys by both the government and charitable organisations show that age bias is the most common form of employment discrimination? Older workers may be unfairly refused a promotion, whilst younger workers may receive lower rates of pay – despite having all the relevant skills and experience. Age discrimination is, of course, illegal – and complying with the law is a key reason for eliminating workplace-related age discrimination. But there are other good reasons:

  • The benefits that result from providing a diverse workplace
  • Within the next twenty years people over the age of fifty will make up almost one-third of the workforce, so any discrimination against this sizeable minority will greatly reduce the available pool of talent available to an organisation

Who is the Age Discrimination Course Suitable For?

This Age Discrimination course is suitable for all members of an organisation requiring a base level understanding of the subject.
