Equality and Diversity


The legislation on age discrimination can be found in the Equality Act 2010. The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitation Service (ACAS) have created a guide for employers as well guidance for employees.  

Age Positive, based in the Department for Work and Pensions, is responsible for strategy and policies to support people making decisions about working and retirement. The Age Positive campaign promotes the benefits of employing a mixed-age workforce that includes older and younger people. The Equality Challenge Unit have produced a guide for universities on being positive about age at work.
