What Is Age Discrimination?

The federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) is a law separate from Title VII that prohibits discrimination in the workplace against individuals over the age of 40. This means that if you are older than 40, your employer may not discriminate against you on the basis of your age. You are also protected from harassment based on your age.

Whether you are established and experienced at your job, but were demoted or dismissed because of your age — or whether you are not being given a fair opportunity to obtain a particular position because you were considered too young or too old — age discrimination by an employer is illegal in New Jersey and the U.S.
