Age discrimination solicitors

If you think you may have been the victim of age discrimination contact our advisers today on 01616 966 229 and speak to one of our age discrimination experts for impartial legal advice.

Age discrimination can take place if a person is treated less favourably as a result of their age or by virtue of them belonging to a particular age group.

An example of such discrimination would be a college discouraging a prospective mature student from enrolling upon a media course as they believe that he/she would not enjoy it, because a lot of the course content is ‘aimed at a younger audience’.

You can be a victim of age discrimination in the workplace whether you are employed, seeking a new job and therefore engaging in a recruitment process or if you are working for a company through an agency.

Who can be held accountable for age discrimination

An employer, public body, service provider or association can be held accountable for the conduct of their employees which gives rise to claims against these businesses or organisations.

Commonly, cases involving age discrimination include claims for direct discrimination, indirect discrimination, harassment and/or victimisation.

We have successfully represented a number of younger and older clients who have brought claims in the Employment Tribunal because they have been dismissed or treated less favourably by their employers or prospective employers and such treatment has been directly or indirectly linked with their age.

Associative age discrimination

Age discrimination can also take place if a person is treated less favourably because of their association with a family member of a particular age group, (for example if they are acting as a carer for an elderly relative).

Our employment and civil discrimination solicitors can pursue age discrimination cases on a nationwide basis and provide a high quality service for their clients, working hard to achieve the best possible results in cases that involve age discrimination both in the workplace and within the course of day to day life.

If you believe that you have been the victim of age discrimination and would like to speak to a member of our team call us on 01616 966 229 or complete our online enquiry form without delay.
