This work is devoted to the unemployment problem and the difficult situation of people over 50 on the labour market. Because of the mass and sophisticated character of analyzed phenomenon as well as gradually progressing process of aging society for the main purpose of this work accepted the presentation of importance of active labour market policy in accordance with unemployed people over 50, which influences on their professional activity. The analysis was conducted on the base of data from the area of the highest level of unemployment which was Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship. The main hypothesis which concerning on the growth of the employment of the jobless people over 50 as a result of conducted active labour market policy was confirmed by the survey results which show distinct decrease of unemployment which is caused by professional activity of elder people. There are two detailed hypotheses in this work. The first is devoted to active looking for employment by jobless people over 50, the second is connected with the assumption that the main obstacle in finding the job by jobless people over 50 is their age. The correctness of the hypotheses was confirmed by the analyses of the bibliography devoted to people over 50, furthermore, the questionnaire’s results in which there was direct question connected with their professional activity and the results of being jobless. The results present that elder people would like to work and be active in the labour market plus their main catalyst is the poor financial situation. Nevertheless, the age discrimination seems to be perceived as the abstraction these days, we can see that it is still understood as the real problem for the people who seek for employment. People over 50 are rarely employed by employers who often regard them as workers with low qualifications and as people who are not able to be flexible and adjust to changing needs on the labour markets.
