Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA)
Protects individuals who are 40
years of age or older from employment discrimination due to age.
Sue Campbell Jones, 1st-Writer.com
The Age Discrimination Act protects individuals who are 40 years of age or older and covers a broad ban against age discrimination, including:
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.
