It’s unlawful to discriminate against applicants simply because of their age. This applies equally to younger and older job seekers. To ensure you have a good understanding of the age-related rights of job seekers and your own obligations, Work45+ has a section on age equality.
Work45+ recognises that older job seekers have a part to play in improving their own employment prospects. For this reason, the section called “For older job seekers” includes tips that employers and job service providers have told us will help people aged over 45 be competitive when applying for jobs.
