Age discrimnation: its been a mixed week of good and bad news

by on May 6, 2016

Here’s a quick round up of some important announcements on Age Discrimination that have caught my eye this week.

In the good news category:

Featured in the Jersey Evening Post, Jersey is finally catching up and age discrimination legislation will be introduced soon (although shockingly it looks like legislation re disability discrimination is unlikely to be introduced until 2018).

A topic we have blogged about on several occasions, and indeed personally experienced, the issue of Mortgage companies age cut off for longer loans, features in the Daily Mail who announce that the Halifax is changing its cut off age for applying for a 25 year loan from 50 to 55.

However; when it comes to the bad new, its pretty bad according to the CIPD who report that almost half of employees hear a discriminatory comment every week.  This covers the full range of discrimination and is both shocking and disturbing.
