Age Discrimination Act
Revised terms and conditions
The complainant alleged the respondent employment agency posted an advertisement seeking a ‘young’ security professional.
The employment agency said a mistake had been made and there had been no intent to exclude any person from applying, or being considered, for the role on the ground of age. The agency undertook to amend the advertisement and deliver anti-discrimination training to new staff. The agency also advised it would contact the complainant to apologise for the incident.
The complainant considered the action taken by the employment agency in response to being notified of the complaint resolved the matter.
