I have an issue about discrimination in ads for employment

Discrimination in relation services happens when you are treated less well than other people, because of who you are.

Advertising is one of the areas covered by the Employment Equality Acts 1998 – 2015 (EEA).

The EEA protects specified categories of people from discrimination.

Advertisements related to goods and services cannot include words or images which appear to show that certain people or groups are not welcome, are inferior to others or will not be treated as well as others.

Example An advertisement which says “young, energetic sales girl” gives the impression that men and older people are not welcome to apply.
