Federal protections for age discrimination victims

If you have ever experienced unfair treatment while on the job because of your age, you may be wondering whether what happened to you crossed the line between unprofessional and illegal behavior. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act is what protects you and other American workers over the age of 40 at the federal level from becoming the subject of age-related discrimination, provided your employer meets certain criteria.  

An aging workforce may face discrimination in Minnesota

Minnesota employees, along with workers all across the country, are protected under the law from a number of illegal discriminatory practices. Companies are not allowed to deny or terminate employment based solely on factors like a worker's race, gender, disability or a number of other characteristics. Age is one such quality that cannot be used to determine an older person's competency or desirability as a current or prospective employee. However, age discrimination in the workplace may be on the rise in the U.S., reinforcing the need for employment law guidelines to protect older employees.
