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!
