    Age-based discrimination occurs when someone is mistreated due to their age or part of a specific age group. Examples of age discrimination can be someone being denied access to something or unfavourable treatment due to their actual age. Age discrimination can take many forms including harassment and victimisation where someone may make you feel ashamed or intimidated due to your age. Age-based discrimination, however, isn’t always so clear-cut.


    Age-related discrimination can also take place indirectly. For example, a job application that requires ten years of experience. While age is not mentioned, it is clear that certain age groups are excluded from the application process. Businesses are still liable for indirect discrimination unless they can prove that this measure is appropriate and necessary for a healthy and safe business.
