What Is Age Discrimination?

Beautiful Ageing face eyes

The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) protects employees who are 40 years of age or older from employment discrimination based on age. The ADEA protection applies to employers with 20 or more employees and applies to both employees and job applicants. The law forbids discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.

Harassment of employees on the basis of age is also unlawful discrimination. Harassment can include offensive remarks about a person’s age. Although the law doesn’t prohibit simple teasing, offhand comments, or isolated incidents that aren’t very serious, harassment is illegal when it is so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile or offensive work environment or when it results in an adverse employment decision, such as the victim being fired or demoted.

The harasser can be the employee’s supervisor, a co-worker, or someone who is not an employee of the employer, such as a client or customer.

Am I Entitled to Holiday Pay?

With today as Presidents’ Day, you may question whether the law requires employers to pay employees for holidays. The short answer is NO. Neither California nor federal laws require employers to pay employees for holidays. Some employment contracts may require paid holidays, but otherwise it is up to the employer to decide whether employees are paid on holidays. Typically, employer handbooks will identify which holidays employees will be compensated for the holidays.
