@CIPD provide useful breakdown of recent age discrimination case

by on January 27, 2016

The way in which age discrimination can occur in an organization is complex, particularly when the situation involves redundancy programmes which are themselves difficult to unpick, even from an HR expert perspective.

This summary by the CIPD provides a step-by-step breakdown of a recent case which highlights some of the potential pitfalls for HR departments.  It also useful offers insights into the need for those going through these processes to be clear about their rights and the implications of their particular set of circumstances.  It is hopeful that as HR specialists become more used to considering the potential for age discrimination such cases will become rare, but for now it certainly seems that employees need to remain vigilant.
