Thanks

Are you asking as a law student or an economics student?

Law-wise - there's not really any such thing. There was something called "Age Regulations 2006" which was subsumed into the Equality Act 2010.

They defined what age discrimination is, and what kind of behavour was to be prohibited - and then had a whole bunch of exceptions for occupational requirements. I think they also equalised the retirement age.


Economics-wise - this is going to be some incredibly complicated niche of Labour Market Economics with some really complicated graphs detailing the loss to the firm / market due to discrimination.

Read some age discrimination cases and you'll get the answers I.e. Mangold v Helm

There is no age discrimination act 2006, it was an EU directive.

I would also read the recent supreme court judgment in seldon v Clarkson Wright
