The ADEA (Age Discrimination in Employment Act) celebrated its 50th anniversary recently. Despite 50 years, age discrimination remains a significant and costly problem for workers, their families, and the US economy.
This session will focus on identifying drivers and developing an awareness of the attributes associated with all five (5) of the generations currently working side-by-side in American workplaces. This awareness will help participants engage individuals in each generational group (whether at work or away from work).
Participants will also be provided key highlights from a recent 40+ EEOC report entitled “The State of Age Discrimination and Older Workers in the U.S. 50 years After the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)”, an overview of EEOC concerns relating to ageism, reverse age discrimination, age-based discriminatory practices and prevention techniques to combat age discrimination in the workplace.
