Preparing for the UK Age Discrimination Act - Workshop Overview

 

Implementing the UK Age Discrimination Act – 1 day workshop

Understanding the age discrimination legislation  is one thing. Creating the response and preparing the organisation is quite another.

Our 1 day workshop will introduce you to the regulations but focuses on an action planning approach for your organisation.

You have to determine what you are actually going to do to ensure that you do not discriminate in:

  • attracting job applicants

  • assessing and selecting the right candidate

  • providing employment and vocational training

  • promotion and career development

  • pay and benefits (including pensions and employment insurances)

  • redundancy and other dismissals

  • retirement

All employers MUST:

  • review their employment policies and practices

  • educate everyone, particularly their managers and team leaders, not forgetting themselves (especially with very small employers) - nobody is exempt from the legislation.

In addition as the so-called ‘pensions crisis’ takes hold, more and more people will want and/or need to carry on working. Perhaps the days of ‘early retirement’ are numbered.

Employers are going to find it harder to persuade people to retire early (or even at ‘normal’ age) and they will start to receive more job applications from older people.

At the same time, they must watch for discriminatory practices against younger people.

Employers must get their employment policies and practices in order, to respond to the demographics and to avoid potentially expensive discrimination claims – remember that there is no upper limit on compensation for successful claims!

Our 1 day workshop covers all the above topics to enable you to understand the implications, but more importantly to focus on developing your anti age discrimination plan – what to do, who will do it and by when.

Anti Age Discrimination Legislation  became law in the UK in October 2006. This gives rights to EVERY working person in the UK and those applying for and undertaking vocational training.
