Prohibited By The Age Discrimination Act of 1975
What is Age Discrimination?
Age Discrimination, as defined by the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, relates to individuals 40 years of age or older who have been discriminated against based on their age. Under the ADEA, it is unlawful to discriminate against a person because of their age with respect to any term, condition, or privilege of employment including, but not limited to, hiring, firing, promotion, layoff, compensation, benefits, job assignments, and training.

Your past employers and anyone else you reported to will be contacted. Even if you haven’t experienced age discrimination in the past, you need to know what they will say.
