Summary

With the Baby Boom generation now in their 50s and 60s and more employees delaying retirement, older workers comprise more of the workforce than ever before. While older employees can be one of your most valuable assets,  an aging workforce can also present unique legal challenges for employers. Last year alone, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission recovered over $77 million on behalf of workers who filed age bias charges, and such charges now account for over 23 percent of all charges received by the agency.  And as new court decisions and legislation continue to change and clarify the legal standards, it can be difficult for organizations to stay in step with the law. Join us for an in-depth look at the latest information on what constitutes age bias -- and best practices to prevent it.
