No workplace age discrimination legislation in Bermuda

by on May 14, 2013

According to the Bermuda Sun, the Government in Bermuda has not included age discrimination in the workplace in its amendments to the Human Rights Act that will be tabled in Parliament later this month.

In common with many countries, it seems that Bermuda also has an ageing population. The charity Age Concern argues that many older people there cannot afford or do not wish to retire at the ‘so called retirement age of 65’ and has challenged the Minister to do whatever is necessary to remove the threat of job loss on the grounds of age ‘as soon as practical’.

It’s interesting how age is sometimes the last ‘characteristic’ to be given legal protection in respect of workplace discrimination.
