Employment: Age restrictions
Earlier this year, Eversheds obtained statistics demonstrating that claims alleging workplace age discrimination are on the increase. The provisional figures, released by the Tribunals Service, showed that in the 10-month period from April 2008 to January 2009 some 3,100 age discrimination claims had been accepted by employment tribunals in England, Scotland and Wales - a figure that already surpassed the 2,949 claims accepted in the 12 months to March 2007. Based on these numbers, we can expect the full year's figures for 2008-09 to be around 27% higher than the previous year.
