Consultation on age discrimination

by on March 27, 2014

The Equality and Human Rights Commission has recently launched a six-week consultation on its draft guidance covering legislation banning age discrimination against people using public or private services.

Details of the consultation are available here on their website.

These provisions only came into effect some 6 years (in 2012) after the ban on age discrimination in work and employment settings. But access to services – for example, the ability to take out a mortgage – is a necessary part for older workers of being able to move within the labour market. So, the provision is important to the issue of age at work.
