Discrimination in Employment Act

Age Discrimination in Employment Act

This assignment will help you understand the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967.

The Age Discrimination in Employment Act prohibits employment  discrimination on the basis of age for anyone over the age of 40. This  kind of legislation, like other types of anti-discriminatory  legislation, will not end all discrimination. However, such laws clearly  state society’s values.

Using the South University Online Library or the Internet, research  about the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. Based on your research,  create a 4- to 5-page paper in a Microsoft Word document that includes  answers to the following questions:

  • Which demographic groups are protected by this Act?
  • Which types of discrimination are prohibited under the Act?
  • Is the Act still relevant for seniors today? If yes, how? If not, why not? Provide examples.
  • What amendments are required to the Act as more baby boomers age?
  • Has this Act affected any of the minority groups in US? If no, why not? If yes, how?
