Today the Women and Equalities Select Committee has released a report into the gender pay gap, with recommendations for action by government and employers that could be hugely progressive in closing the pay gap.
The government has announced a review into increasing the state pension age. The review is to consider changes in life expectancy, wider changes in society and help ensure the State Pension remains sustainable.
The Equality and Human Rights commission warns that thousands of people could be at risk of being denied jobs and services each year due to unlawful, discriminatory adverts.
Complaints about adverts which discriminate against older workers or on the basis of sex appear the most common but people are also being prevented from having a fair shot at work opportunities because of their disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation and other characteristics, according to evidence gathered by the Commission.
