What are some examples of Age Discrimination?

  • Age Based Discrimination
  • Advertising for Someone to Join a "Dynamic, Young Team"
  • Not interviewing someone because they are too young or too old to ‘fit in’ with other staff
  • Not employing younger workers because it’s assumed that they’ll quickly move on to another job
  • Not employing mature workers because it’s assumed that they’ll soon retire
  • Not providing training opportunities for young or mature workers because "It’s not worth it"
  • Making choices around redundancy, or forcing someone to retire, because of their age.

Are there ever any exceptions?

The Equal Opportunity Act includes some exceptions. This means that discrimination may not be against the law in particular circumstances, for example:
  • Hiring a person of a particular age to provide domestic or personal services in a person’s home. This may include the care, instruction or supervision of children or personal care services.
  • Hiring a person of a particular age where it is a genuine occupational requirement that a person be of a particular age, for example, in a dramatic or an artistic performance, entertainment, photographic or modelling work, when this is necessary for reasons of authenticity or credibility
  • An employer may pay an employee who is under the age of 21 years according to the employee's age
  • A person may take a special measure for the purpose of promoting substantive equality for members of a group with a particular attribute.
