What is 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 a carer for an elderly relative.
Does age discrimination only apply to older workers?
Age discrimination can impact employees of any age, and is not only associated with older staff. The age gap between employees can span over 50 years, and therefore age discrimination applies when a person is treated unfairly because of their age, no matter how young or old they are.
In which areas of employment is age discrimination most common?
Age discrimination commonly takes place in:
- Training and promotion
- Performance management
