The temporary recruitment company RedWigWam has commended the new report coming from the UK government on age discrimination in the workplace. The data suggests that over one million individuals over the age of fifty and looking for work were sidelined due to “discrimination, bias and outdated employment practices”.
It also said Government ministers and Britain’s equalities watchdog must be clearer that prejudice, unconscious bias and casual ageism in the workplace were all unlawful under the Equality Act 2010.
Lorna Davidson, CEO of short-term recruitment specialist at RedWigWam, said: “Age discrimination should be consigned to the past.
“At RedWigWam we’re against any kind of discrimination, so I support the findings of the report. It’s our policy to treat everyone fairly, regardless of their age, gender, race or sexuality.
“Many of our workers have retired from full-time permanent employment, and they come to us because they want to continue working but in flexible, temporary roles that fit in with their post-retirement lives.”
