Age-Related Redundancy: Employment Law

Redundancy is a serious problem for older workers. It is much harder to find a job the older you get and sometimes it can be a challenge to find any kind of job.

If you think you have become a victim of age discrimination, then seek legal help from a solicitor specialising in employment law, so you can see what your legal options are. You don’t want to end up being a victim, so make sure that you get the legal advice you need.

How Age Discrimination Works

Older workers used to be regularly singled out at work. They wouldn’t get promotions and they would get passed over for raises.

This is illegal now, but not all companies follow the rules and you can still end up being a victim of age-related redundancy.

If you have been passed over for a job promotion or are being treated unfairly at work, you might be a victim.

Payment issues are very common with age discrimination and you might not be getting paid the same as the younger workers in your office.

You will want to file a complaint with the employment tribunal if you think you might be a victim.

When Is Age Redundancy Considered Unfair?

If you have been chosen for redundancy because of your age you are likely to be dealing with unfair dismissal and you should get legal advice as soon as possible.

If you are a union member you can seek advice from your union to make sure that the redundancy is fair. You can appeal your redundancy through the employment tribunal.

You should get proper notice of your redundancy and you should also get the right amount of redundancy pay.

If you have any issues with this process and feel that things are not going the way they are supposed to you will want to get legal help.

Being discriminated against because of your age is no joke and you need to make sure that you don’t let yourself become a victim.

Since it is so difficult to find a job if you have been a victim of age redundancy you might need to join a training program or take a lot of time to look for another job.

It is much harder to find a job when you are older and you have to give yourself more time to find a new position.
