Age discrimination in the provision of goods and services
12 January 2017
Since 1 October 2012, it has been unlawful to discriminate on grounds of age in the provision of goods and services. Laws banning age discrimination in an employment context have been in force since 2006.
Affected businesses are likely to include retailers, insurance companies, financial services providers, banks, holiday operators, cinemas, sports bodies, leisure centres, hospitals, government departments, local councils, the public sector and private members’ clubs.
