Given the medical advances that have been happening over the past few decades, it should come as no surprise that New Jersey residents are living longer and longer. This means senior citizens will form a larger and larger portion of American society. Therefore, it's necessary to think about how this age group will be financially supported in the years to come.
New Jersey residents may know that terminating a worker solely due to age can be a violation of existing employment law. However, a 57-year-old woman who worked for IBM claimed that she was terminated to create openings for younger workers. According to her lawsuit, the woman claims that the company has routinely gotten rid of older workers while keeping younger ones employed. The plaintiff was terminated by the company in 2016.
