MacRoberts Offers Employers Succinct Guidance on Age Discrimination Rules

MacRoberts, the leading Scottish law firm, is offering businesses specially packaged advice to guide them through the intricacies of the new procedures, including those relating to retirement, which came into force on 1 October 2006 as part of the new Employment Equality (Age Discrimination) Regulations.

The Government estimates that the new legislation will lead to a further 8,000 applications to employment tribunals each year, roughly double the number of claims that have been made in the last few years under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 or the Race Relations Act 1976 and around 1600% times more than are made each year under religion and belief and sexual orientation legislation.
