Ageism In the Workplace – Ask #HR Bartender
AUGUST 25, 2019
Last year marked the 50 th anniversary of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) , which prohibits discrimination against individuals 40 years of age or older. In a survey from AARP, nearly 2 out of 3 workers have experienced some form of age discrimination or age bias. Ageism is a huge issue for organizations, especially given today’s labor market. Today’s reader note is a long story, but given the statistics above, it’s one that I believe is happening more than we realize.
