Age Discrimination: A Human Rights Perspective – seminar 10 December 2014

Age Discrimination: A Human Rights Perspective

Sponsored by MICRA and The University of Manchester

Wednesday 10 December 2014

Speakers:

This event forms part of a broader programme of human rights events across the United Kingdom taking place between December 8th and 12th (full programme).  The prohibition on age discrimination in employment protects not only the basic human right to equality but also has a number of social and economic benefits for employers, employees and the state. In a time of demographic and economic crisis, the protection against age discrimination ensures, in theory at least, that older workers can remain in employment and will be free from stereotyping and unjustifiable discrimination. This seminar will address some of the most topical issues surrounding age discrimination in employment in the UK, the challenges presented by the many permissible objective justifications of discriminatory treatment and evidence of employer attitudes and practice towards older employees approaching retirement.
