Welcome to agediscrimination.info

Agediscrimination.info is a one-stop source of statistics and information for employers, employees, researchers, students, journalists and others interested in age discrimination issues in the UK as well as internationally, including the USA, Canada, India and other countries.

Ageism and age discrimination could affect anyone throughout their life, from children to old age pensioners and agediscrimination.info provides a wealth of data, information and guidance on UK age discrimination laws and issues. Agediscrimination.info also includes a comprehensive summary of international age discrimination laws provided by law firms from the Ius Laboris international employment law alliance.

According to leading employment law barrister and age discrimination expert Jennifer Eady QC of Old Square Chambers, "Lewis Silkin is to be congratulated on this website - it is a great resource", whilst both Sean Jones QC of 11KBW and Daniel Tatton-Brown of Littleton regard agediscrimination.info as "excellent".

Lewis Silkin and Sacker & Partners have also produced a book on age discrimination (an 'excellent analysis of age discrimination legislation' - Michael Rubenstein, Equal Opportunities Review, 1 October 2008).

The site also features important age discrimination cases from the UK and Europe which help explain the age discrimination laws.
