The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA) protects certain applicants and employees 40 years of age and older from discrimination based on age in hiring, promotion, discharge, compensation, or terms, conditions, or privileges of employment. The ADEA is enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. In addition, the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act (OWBPA) federal law requires employers to offer older workers (those who are at least 40 years old) benefits that are equal to or, in some cases, cost the employer as much as, the benefits it offers to younger workers. This course covers the topic of age discrimination in the workplace.
Age discrimination can impact both younger and older employees, and even though some states have laws against it, federal law does not specifically protect younger workers. This course covers the ADEA and OWBPA, hostility and harassment in the workplace, and retaliation. Employers and employees should familiarize themselves with their obligations and rights, respectively, to ensure each party is covered.
Particularly for employers, consistent and equitable policies across the organization help ensure fairness and lawful actions are taken with everyone, and there are no concerns or perceptions around age-related discriminatory practices at your workplace. Use this course to make sure all employees follow the law and treat everyone in the workplace with dignity and respect.
