Posts tagged "age discrimination"

Job descriptions may hide age discrimination

California workplaces are demanding. Employers want people who have cutting edge training and are able to adapt to the latest and greatest techniques in the field. In many cases, this means mastering new technology and incorporating digital media skills into their day-to-day lives. However, many workers in California are getting older. As baby boomers approach retirement age, many of them are still in the workforce.

What is age discrimination?

This blog has, from time to time, discussed workplace discrimination. California employees should understand that workplace discrimination is illegal if the discrimination is based upon certain factors. These factors include an employee's race, religion, national origin, gender and age. However, people should be aware that age discrimination only applies in certain contexts.

California waitresses sue for age discrimination -- and win

Americans are aging. Baby boomers are beginning to reach retirement age in record numbers. With this aging population comes an aging workforce. As California workers get older, they should understand that they have all the same legal rights that they had as younger workers.

Age discrimination prevalent during economic rebound

Over the last several years, the economy has hit workers in California hard. Thousands of people were laid off as the Great Recession plagued the country. Many workers have spent months and even years trying to find any place that would hire them. Many of the workers that were laid off were baby boomers, nearing the end of their careers -- but not quite ready for retirement.
