Mrs Ulyatt gets age discrimination at work compensation after taking advice about making a claim from specialist employment solicitor Michael Lewin.
Mrs Ulyatt was a jewellery designer for a chain of renowned jewellers. She had worked for the same company since leaving university 22 years ago.
Most of her counterparts had a master’s degree and the company were offering all the staff with degrees the opportunity to get their master’s degree.
Our client had done some extra interior design courses to allow her to keep her fingers on the pulse for design ideas and she thought she would enjoy the discipline involved in the master’s degree; she applied for a place.
She was stopped in the corridor and asked if she would withdraw her request for being allowed to take her master’s degree as she was obviously not the right candidate as she was too old to learn new things. Furthermore her boss said that she would be blocking the correct candidate’s career development by her application.
Our client felt that her path to promotion was effectively blocked as he obviously was not viewing her as a person he was considering her age before all her other positive attributes to the job.
I have been the victim of age discrimination at work and I would like employment solicitor advice about making a claim. Michael Lewin never charges up-front-fees to make employment law claims. We take our fees from the other side you get 100% of the compensation that you are awarded.
The matter has been settled for Mrs Ulyatt out of court. She has won compensation for the unfair treatment she received. Most importantly for her we were able to get a favourable reference for her and she has already found a better paid job.
