Is it allowed to ask older candidates during a job interview when they intend to retire?

It is not permitted to exclude a person seeking a job because of his or her age or because he or she is receiving or will receive a pension.

When an employer asks about retirement in order to find out the age of a person, preferring a younger worker, this choice is discriminatory and prohibited. The employer cannot and must not decide for the employee when he or she will stop working and retire.

If you did not find an answer to your concern, you may contact the Estonian Commissioner for Gender Equality and Equal Treatment in a free format by sending an email to avaldus@volinik.ee. When contacting the Commissioner, the identity of the person shall not be disclosed and, upon request, anonymity shall be guaranteed.
