An age equality duty: the time has come

Authors:

Place of publication:

The Government is introducing duties requiring public bodies to promote gender and Disability equality. The time has come for an age "duty" as well which it is alleged, would make a huge difference to the lives of older people. It is claimed that this would mean a move beyond measures to protect individuals from discrimination, by providing a means of restructuring organisations and public policy to promote "genuine equality". And by focusing decision-makers on delivering responsive services, with choice and quality for people of every age, it would be a key tool for public service reform. What is misleadingly called an "equality duty" is actually a requirement that organisations in the public sector have due regard for equality in all aspects of their work, in a manner which involves employees, citizens and service-users alike.

Age discrimination handbook

Age discrimination is the most widespread form of discrimination in the workplace. It can be overt and deliberate, or it can be subtle and unintentional. It can take the form of individual decisions made by employers or colleagues, or be embedded into the policies and systems of an organisation. Importantly, age discrimination can affect people of any age. The Employment Equality (Age) Regulations in force from October 2006 implement the EU Framework Directive on Equal Treatment in Employment and Occupation and make discrimination on the grounds of age unlawful in employment and education. Employers are no longer permitted to use age as a criterion for recruitment, promotion, training and termination, and significant changes have come into force that affect retirement, pay and benefits and pension schemes. The Handbook is a comprehensive, yet practical, guide to the new law. There is expert guidance on the regulations with extensive cross-references to other strands of anti-discrimination law. Particular attention is given to the various loopholes, justifications and exceptions that are specific to this type of discrimination law and will present challenges even to the most experienced adviser.
