Why Age Discrimination?

If you apply for a job, an employer can ask your date of birth. Why do they use this to discriminate against you? Older people experience most age discrimination. Why?

Is it unlawful for an employer to impose a lower age limit when recruiting, unless this age restriction can be 'objectively justified' or is imposed by law?

What is Objective Justification?
If challenged, Can your employer justify that any direct or indirect discrimination is a 'proportionate' way of achieving a 'legitimate' aim?

Are there laws to prevent age discrimination in the workplace? Are these laws making sure that you are not denied a job, training or a promotion because of your age? Are you also protected from harassment or victimization because of your age?

Why would the government and corporate bodies set age limits for candidates?

Is it a crime for educated people to grow older? Is it a curse to grow older?

Are qualifications not better than age? Is age better than qualifications?

Do I do wrong to lie about my age to get a job?
