Implications of Implementing the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA).
Delon, Floyd G.
Amendments to the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 have extended protection up to age 70 for employees of (1) all governmental agencies, (2) employers of 20 or more persons, (3) employment agencies, and (4) labor organizations. Court cases involving age discrimination have touched on the applicability of the law and its effect on recruitment, hiring, promotion, discharge, reduction in force, involuntary retirement, and the procedures by which relief from discrimination can be sought. The provisions of the law are applicable to nearly all public and nonpublic schools and colleges. (Author/PGD)
