Increased life expectancy and an ageing workforce have highlighted the problem of age discrimination in developed countries. Malcolm Sargeant's Age Discrimination in Employment is an encyclopedic guide for HR specialists and employment lawyers to the nature of age discrimination in the workplace in a number of countries, along with a discussion of the main thrust of employment law in this area, including an analysis of the Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006. The book opens with a consideration of what age discrimination is and how it manifests itself at the workplace and elsewhere. It also breaks discrimination down by age (discrimination against young, middle, and senior age employees) and explores multiple discrimination, including age and gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and disability. An important reference for HR departments, policy-makers and others concerned with organizational culture and development, discrimination, and social policy.
