Age Discrimination in the Workplace
Age discrimination — adverse treatment of workers age 40 or older — is prohibited by both the federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). Federal, state and local agencies that receive federal assistance, including many post-secondary educational institutions, are all bound by this legislation.
Despite these equal employment opportunity laws, the incentives for employers to prefer younger employees over older workers are obvious. In most cases, younger workers are less expensive, easier to intimidate, less knowledgeable about their workplace rights, and cheaper to insure, and better looking. Our Los Angeles age discrimination lawyers seen that this last factor can be critically important from the employer’s perspective in many industries, such as:
- College recruitment
- Fashion and design
