The Act is both wide and vague in its definition of age, so it can cover all individuals of any age.

Discrimination, victimisation and harassment of an individual in the workplace because of their age is prohibited under the Equality Act 2010 (‘The Act’). It is unlawful to treat a person differently in the workplace because of their age, unless it can be objectively justified or is covered by an exemption or genuine occupational requirement.
