The Framework Directive on Equal Treatment in Employment and Occupation applies to all those in employment, with respect to preventing discrimination on the grounds of age. This article is concerned with the effects of this upon young workers, rather than older workers who are the traditional focus for much of the research on age. Consideration is given to relevant cases at the European Court of Justice (ECJ), as well as in the UK. There is also an examination of the limited research done on this subject and a justification of the need for more.
