What is age discrimination?
This is when you are treated differently because of your age in one of the situations that are covered by the Equality Act.
The Equality Act has some exceptions. For example, students are not protected from age discrimination at school.
The treatment could be a one-off action or as a result of a rule or policy based on age. It doesn’t have to be intentional to be unlawful.
There are some circumstances when being treated differently due to age is lawful.
