Tees provides support for businesses on every aspect of age discrimination. Our specialists regularly represent employers in age discrimination claims.
Discriminating against an employee, or a job applicant, because of their age may be unlawful under the Equality Act 2010. We guide businesses through the complex issues surrounding age discrimination considerations, including employer justified retirement age. We can help you whether you need support writing policy documents, dealing with a grievance or representation at a tribunal with ACAS or during negotiations.
We can help you act quickly and strategically if an employee makes a discrimination claim against your business. At Tees, we understand how a discrimination complaint (whether internal or external) can affect your business, so we’ll work with you to manage the situation. We will advise you on the best course of action to take, so you can minimise potential risks.

Our specialist employment law team are experts in age discrimination. We have a wealth of experience advising businesses in this area of the law. We can help you make sure that your business complies with the law and that any issues are dealt with quickly and effectively – with a minimum of fuss.
The Equality Act also abolished the default retirement age - so it’s illegal to insist that employees retire when they reach a certain age, unless it can be justified. We can advise on whether you have grounds to do this.
Our policy review service helps businesses meet their obligations under anti-discrimination laws.
We draft bespoke policies which ensure that your business complies with the law. We can review your policy documents and suggest amendments to existing policies to bring them up to date. Our policies are always written in plain language, so that they are completely accessible and understandable.
We also provide training for staff on equality law and if you have had a claim of age discrimination brought against you, we can defend it for you.
