Ageism in the workplace on the increase

An article featured on the BBC News (Business) website today concentrates on ageism since the recent introduction of anti-ageist employment law.

The study group - The Employers Forum on Age - reported in the article suggests ageism is still "endemic" in the UK workplace despite new laws coming into force last year.

To prove the point a poll found that 16 million people witnessed ageist practices at work last year.

What's more, the study highlights how more than 2,000 claims have been lodged with the Employment Tribunal Service since the new laws came into effect.
