With all the myriad workplace problems we are facing today, an HR professional could be forgiven for asking, "Is age discrimination still a thing?" Indeed it is. Workplace age discrimination did not disappear in December 2006, when mandatory retirement was outlawed. The workforce is aging, and both Millennials and Gen Z are clamoring for the Boomers' jobs. This reality is creating some new challenges. Can you provide preferential training or advancement opportunities to younger workers? Can you cut off an older worker's benefits at age 65? Can you exit "expensive" older workers for "cheaper" younger ones? Can you talk about "retirement"? Is the expression "You're not a good fit" a legitimate reason for termination, or is it code for "ageism"? Hendrik Nieuwland will provide you with the answers, and arm you with the knowledge you need to protect your company from workplace age discrimination claims.
In this seminar, you will learn the legal test for workplace age discrimination, the legal test for justifying distinctions in employment based on age (the bona fide occupational requirement test), and will review specific examples of how treating workers differently based on their age can be both lawful and unlawful in today's modern workplace.
