Mrs Arkin sought advice from Michael Lewin about compensation for her age discrimination claim in the UK and got the support she needed.
Mrs Arkin worked as a seamstress in a textiles factory working on various projects all on standard sewing machines. He had worked there fro 12 years and now at 54 was still enjoying her role and the income it brought her.
The factory was undergoing some changes and there had been a degree of investment resulting in some computerised machines and some training days away from the factory. The new equipment would be used on projects that the old sewing machines couldn?t do so the majority of the staff were trained on the equipment but Mrs Arkin was left out of this process. She was advised that her skills were too important on the standard machines.
A few months later when most of the staff were working on the new equipment it came to light that the staff working on the new equipment had had a pay rise for the more complicated work but as an older staff member she wasn?t given the opportunity to train on it.
?I felt really frustrated that I had been left out of the training process and even more so that I wouldn?t receive a pay rise even though I would have been able to learn the new techniques fine. I contacted Michael Lewin about compensation for age discrimination and a claim in the UK?
