Age Audit Tool

A survey tool to help assess employee attitudes toward age in your organisation

The Acas Age Audit Tool can:

  • Assess what your employees think about age issues in their workplace and your organisations’ approaches and policies
  • Help address any risks or issues that could potentially lead to future discrimination claims
  • Create a firm foundation for your policies, practices and future direction

Age and discrimination

The Equality Act 2010 makes it unlawful to discriminate against employees because of their age.

The removal of the default retirement age in 2011 means that employers are now managing the older worker and also their expectations in the workplace moving forward.

Acas and Coventry University have developed this Age Audit Tool to help organisations assess their employee’s attitudes towards age and age related issues in their workplace.

It can also help reduce the risk of claims of unfairness and discrimination.
