Although discrimination on the basis of age is illegal, employers regularly discriminate against people over the age of 40 when hiring, promoting and offering training opportunities. Likewise, when companies implement reductions in force and layoffs, quite often it is older employees and managers who are the first to be demoted and let go, despite their experience and ability. Age discrimination may be proven when a layoff results in an abnormally high percentage of more experienced, higher compensated older employees and managers being let go as compared to younger, less experienced employees. Basically, terminations that affect older people disproportionately and policies that provide training, education and other benefits only for younger workers may be discriminatory.
