Is it illegal for companies to ask your graduation year and your age in a job interview?

What to say if they ask my age in an interview?

it is illegal. if they ask you about your age then that would be an age discrimination.


QuoteThe Equality Act says it's only unlawful discrimination if you're treated unfairly because of certain reasons. ... Age is one of the protected characteristics under the Equality Act. Age discrimination is where you're treated unfairly because of your age or because you're part of a particular age group.
