name five aspects of employment relating to age that fall under the protection of the equality act 2010
The Equality Act 2010 makes it unlawful to discriminate against employees, [ job seekers and trainees because of their age.

For example, a requirement for job applicants to have worked in a particular industry for ten years may disadvantage younger people. Indirect discrimination can only be justified if it is a proportionate means of achieving a legitimate aim. harassment: when unwanted conduct related to age has the purpose or effect of violating an individual's dignity or creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for that individual. victimisation: unfair treatment of an employee who has made or supported a complaint about age discrimination. .......... ]
