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.

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. However, it might be possible to justify this type of discrimination if evidence showed it encouraged staff retention.

give three examples of disability discrimination
Weegy: The three examples of disability discrimination : DIRECT DISCRIMINATION 1.A pub allows a family with a child who has cerebral palsy to drink in their beer garden but not in their family room. [ The family with the disabled child are not given the same choices that other families have. INDIRECT DISCRIMINATION 2)A local authority produces an information leaflet about its services for local people. It does not produce an easy-to-read version of the leaflet in order to save money. This would make it more difficult for someone with a learning disability to access the services and could amount to indirect discrimination. DISCRIMINATION BY ASSOCIATION 3)An employer disciplines a woman because she has had to take time off to care for her disabled child. He has not disciplined other workers who have had similar amounts of time off work. This would be counted as direct disability discrimination. ] (More)
