"Thank you for your application, but unfortunately we're looking for someone older," the guest house management told the woman.

The business said it has a policy of not hiring anyone under age 22.

"According to the discrimination laws, every prospective employee has the right to be judged on their merits when seeking work," ombudsman Agneta Broberg said. "In this case, it didn't happen as the woman concerned was deemed to be too young."
