WHAT WE DO

Age Discrimination

FEHA prohibits age discrimination in all areas of employment for workers over the age of 40 in the state of California and extends coverage to employers with five or more full-time or part-time workers. The Age Discrimination Act (ADEA) prohibits age discrimination at the federal level and applies to companies with more than 15 employees. 

Does California Enforce Age Discrimination?

California’s age discrimination statutes are to be enforced “with the goal of not only protecting older workers as individuals, but also of protecting older workers as a group, since they face unique obstacles in the later phases of their careers.” Thus, employment practices that have a disparate impact on older workers as a group may constitute age discrimination. Often times, employers get creative to evade age discrimination liability by engaging in an alleged “reduction in force.” Most cases, the oldest employees are terminated as a result of this alleged reduction.

This is illegal.

Pension and retirement plans that require employees to retire at a specific age are generally unenforceable, although there are some minor exceptions.

How to establish age discrimination:

  • The employee must prove, either by direct or indirect evidence, that the adverse employment action was taken because of his/her age.
  • Derogatory and negative comments relating to an employee’s age is an example of direct evidence of age discrimination. Age discrimination can also be established by offering evidence that the employee was replaced by someone significantly younger or that significantly younger employees in similar positions were treated more favorably. Salary differentials between.
  • The use of salary as the basis for differentiating between employees when terminating employment may be found to constitute age discrimination “if use of that criterion adversely impacts older workers as a group.”
