Ageing and Employment Prospects: The Case of Slovenian Unemployed Workers
The paper analyzes the perceptions of older unemployed in Slovenian labour market. The empirical results are based
on a survey, which was conducted in April 2009. The results show that even 52 % of older unemployed workers believe that they
have been victims of age discrimination. They believe that age is a disadvantage when seeking work. The consequences of
perceived discrimination are most often that the individuals do not apply for a job, because they feel that they would not be
chosen, a highly undesirable result in an ageing population. The analysis is one of the few of its kind in the region. It also offers
important policy conclusions and potential for future research.
