The three examples of age discrimination during the recruitment process are ;
1. Direct discrimination would occur if, for example, an employer refused to employ people under the age of 30, believing them to be unreliable; or advertised for a 'young, dynamic person' as this would potentially exclude older people from applying.
2. Indirect discrimination would occur if, for example, an employer only advertised jobs in magazines aimed at young people - this may discriminate against older people as they are less likely to subscribe to the magazine; or introduced a benefit only for employees with more than ten years' service - fewer younger employees are likely to have enough service to qualify.
3. You should check that your recruitment process is non-discriminatory, eg aim to place advertisements in publications read by a range of age groups, and avoid using terms which imply a particular age group, such as 'mature', 'enthusiastic', 'highly experienced' or 'recent graduate'. - See more at:

Sorry debnjerry, you are right. I probably went through the archive and didn't notice when I had already answered.
