Tackling age discrimination in Britain – the Employment Equality (Age) Regulations and beyond
The Employment Equality (Age) Regulations come into effect on 1 October 2006. For the first time this will outlaw age discrimination in employment (whether against older or younger people). What difference will this make to current employment practices? Age discrimination legislation will not apply to access to goods and services, and this might impact on employment (for example in terms of employer’s liability insurance). Is this likely to change, and if so, what will the implications be? Some pressure groups argue, for example, that discrimination against older people is standard practice in the National Health Service.
