The Changing Face of Age Discrimination: Today and Tomorrow

The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) was enacted in 1967. In 2009, 42 years later, it took the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) to answer a fairly basic question, “What is a plaintiff’s burden of proof?” In 2018, SCOTUS addressed another, seemingly basic question as to whether the ADEA applies to small, public sector employers. Today, Congress is considering bi-partisan legislation to amend the ADEA. Why now? Join this interactive and engaging program as we consider the following:

  • SCOTUS’ answers to the above questions;
  •  the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals’ 2019 ruling as to whether the ADEA protects applicants;
  • the EEOC’s latest statistics on ADEA charges and their nature;
  • how state laws compare to the ADEA;
  • pending federal legislation to amend the ADEA, how and why;
  • Proactive tips for recruitment, selection, hiring and retention;
  • Pitfalls to avoid in reductions-in-force (RIF); early retirement and other programs;
  • and more!
