Age discrimination is considered the most widely experienced form of discrimination across Europe. In a work context, this can be particularly harmful. Although older workers are sometimes stereotyped in positive ways — as more loyal, reliable, or committed compared to their younger colleagues – negative stereotypes abound. We explore this topic further and argue about the wide-spread misconceptions of age-related negative stereotypes.
