Do you think you have not been appointed for a particular post because of your age? Or do you think someone younger to you gets promoted when your promotion was in due?
The laws in United States are clear and prohibit discrimination in job, appointment or any such opportunities based on age. The Age Discrimination Act of 1975 prohibits any discrimination based on age in programs and activities that get federal aid and assistance. The Act applies to all ages and permits certain age distinction and factors other than age that matches Act’s requirements.
Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA) protects certain applicants and employees 40 years of age and older from being discriminated on the grounds of age in getting promotion, increment, compensation, discharge of duty, etc.
Section 188 of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA) prohibits discrimination against applicants, employees and participants in WIA Title I-financially assisted programs and activities, and programs that are part of the One-Stop system, on the grounds of age. In addition, WIA prohibits discrimination on the grounds of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, political affiliation or belief, and for beneficiaries only, citizenship or participation in a WIA Title I-financially assisted program or activity.
