From 1st October 2006 it will be illegal in the UK to discriminate
against employees on grounds of age. It is already illegal to
discriminate on grounds of race or sex.
The problem is not the legality of age discrimination, it's proving
age discrimination. Charging age discrimination for not getting a
job is virtually impossible to prove, so passing a law against it is
an exercise in futility. It's much easier to prove if you've worked
for a company for 20 years and are down sized six months before you
could retire, but even that is an uphill battle.
