Age Discrimination is the practice of treating an employee or job applicant less favorably than other employees or applicants due to his or her age. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) only protects those workers or applicants who are over the age of forty. Some state laws expand age discrimination protection to younger workers as well. Age Discrimination can take many forms including persistent harassment based on a person's age, demotion, unjustified pay disparities, passing over for opportunity, or any other adverse employment action motivated by an individual's age.  less -
