There are a multitude of age related issues flowing from the Covid- 19 pandemic Rebecca Mckay and Imogen Reseigh will be discussing them in our next Trowers Tuesdays session on 14 July 2020 at 11:30am. 

Age is a protected characteristic under the Equality Act 2010 and employers need to be alive to age discrimination risks. 

In the shorter term, it is clear that those who are older are at a higher risk of serious illness from Covid-19, something employers need to bear in mind. In both the shorter and longer term, the economic impact of the pandemic means we are likely to see individuals working for longer and retiring later. Employers will need to make sure their workplace pension and wider benefits remain fit for purpose in the wake of the changes.

The Government has announced a number of initiatives aimed at supporting younger people, such as traineeships and work placements for 16 - 24 year olds and incentives to boost the hiring of apprentices. Your workplace will become increasingly diverse and there are challenges associated with managing a workforce of those in Generation Z to Baby Boomers.

Please submit any questions in advance, using the registration form, and we will aim to answer as many as possible during the session. The register button will take you to an external Zoom page.

This session will be recorded and shared on our website/socials. For full details of how the data will be managed, please see our fair processing notice.
