This summary of age discrimination law in Egypt has been prepared by Shalakany Law Office: www.shalakany.com
Protection from discrimination is enshrined within the new Constitution of Egypt issued in 2014. Articles 9 and 53 of the Constitution state:
However, with the exception of Article 80 of the Constitution, which guarantees certain rights to children under the age of 18, age discrimination is not specifically protected or regulated in the Egyptian Constitution or Laws.
Article 80 of the Constitution stipulates:
The retirement age in Egypt is 60 years, or higher if the employer provides for a higher retirement age in its internal regulations or employment contracts.
Although not a case, it may be worth noting that in the last year since 2017, Parliament has been drafting a new labour law. Discussions have been temporarily put on hold, however, until the new legislative session of Parliament commences in October 2018.
