What is Age Discrimination?
The Age Discrimination in Employment Act, or “ADEA” is a federal law that makes it an unlawful for an employer to discharge or otherwise discriminate against an employee because of the employee’s age. The ADEA protects individuals age 40 and over. The Massachusetts Civil Rights Act also prohibits age discrimination.
Examples of possible Age discrimination are:
- Terminating an individual’s employment and hiring or promoting a younger, less qualified employee to the same position.
- Refusing to hire or promote an older applicant in favor of a younger applicant.
- Being told that that the company is trying to get “younger” or “needs more energy”.
- Negative comments from supervisors specifically mentioning an individual’s age.
During layoffs, older employees are terminated, while younger, less qualified employees are retained.
