Age discrimination in employment is illegal in the United States and is protected by the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA). Here's a breakdown of key points:

Who is protected?

Individuals who are 40 years of age or older.
Applies to all aspects of employment, including hiring, firing, promotion, compensation, benefits, and terms and conditions of employment.

What types of discrimination are prohibited?

Refusal to hire or promote: Employers cannot base decisions on age alone, regardless of the applicant's qualifications or the employee's performance.
Discriminatory layoffs or terminations: Age cannot be a factor in decisions about who to lay off or terminate.
Unfair pay or benefits: Employers cannot offer lower wages, fewer benefits, or different benefits to workers solely based on their age.
Stereotypes and assumptions: Using age-based stereotypes or assumptions to make employment decisions is also illegal.


Bona fide occupational qualifications (BFOQs): In rare cases, an employer may justify age discrimination if age is a bona fide occupational qualification (BFOQ) reasonably necessary to the normal operation of the particular business.
Bona fide seniority systems: Seniority systems that are not intended as a subterfuge to evade the purposes of the ADEA are generally permissible.


Individuals who believe they have been discriminated against can file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC can investigate the complaint and attempt to mediate a resolution.
If the EEOC cannot resolve the complaint, the individual can file a lawsuit in federal court.
Remedies may include back pay, lost benefits, reinstatement, and emotional distress damages.
