Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA)

Protects individuals who are 40 years of age or older from employment discrimination due to age. Article by Sue Campbell Jones, 1st-Writer.com
(Back to Equal Employment Opportunity Regulations - Article)

The Age Discrimination Act protects individuals who are 40 years of age or older and covers a broad ban against age discrimination, including:

  • Discrimination in hiring, wages, promotions, apprenticeships (including joint labor-management apprenticeship programs), layoffs, firings, etc.

  • Statements or specifications in job advertisements or notices for age requirements, preferences or limitations. Age limit may only be specified where age is proven to be a bona fide occupational qualification

  • Denial of benefits (an employer may reduce benefits based on age only if the cost of providing reduced benefits to older workers is the same as the cost of providing benefits to younger workers).

The ADEA applies to employers with 20 or more employees, thus providing less coverage or protection than the Civil Rights Act. The ADEA was amended in 1986 and again in 1991 by the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act.

Are You Giving Away Your Age in your Resume?

You might be, if you include the year you graduated from high school, or if you include your date of birth (or current age) as part of your e-mail address. Often, a person will pick a number which is significant and easy-to-remember when creating an e-mail address, and this number is frequently individual's birth year: JSmith75.

See the complete Age Discrimination Act of 1967 (ADEA) on the EEOC Website. Also see: U.S. Department of Labor article on Age Discrimination.

See “Fighting Ageism Through The Ages” (AARP Magazine).
