Joanna Robinson of thisismoney.co.uk reported last year how figures from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) “show 428000 over 50s out of work then the Policy Exchange report says it expects that far more than a quarter of 1 million of those will not work in the next year and many will never work again”.

The report went on to say that “of those currently unemployed only 40% of over 50s will return to work in the next 12 months compared to over 60% for those aged under 25”.

Her article discusses the issues for older employees as well as she comments “the future of older unemployed people are much more acutely affected to ? the report estimates that six months of unemployment will reduce an older worker’s future wages by almost 8%”.

We recently received an enquiry from Ms H who felt that she was being discriminated against due to her maternity leave and having a child. On returning to work following her maternity leave she made a request to her employers for flexible working hours due to child care issues as stated in her employment contract that she was allowed to do. However her employers denied this. On appeal then granted a short period of time during which she could work flexible hours but was required to work her normal full shifts after this time. As Ms H felt she would not be able to continue with these hours she felt forced into handing in her resignation from her job. Our employment team are currently looking into this case to determine if there are indeed grounds for Ms H to bring a claim against her employer and to ensure that we advise her appropriately for her particular circumstances.
