Age-Based Discrimination Pitfalls To Avoid: How To Steer Clear Of Costly Age-Related Lawsuits And Settlements

Description:

The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) is observing its 50th anniversary this year and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is celebrating the milestone with proactive enforcement efforts.

Recently, a causal dining steakhouse settled an EEOC age discrimination lawsuit to the tune of $12 million, after applicants had allegedly been denied front of the house positions due to their age. The EEOC also sued a different restaurant chain that refused to hire an applicant with over 20 years of experience due to an alleged concern about “maximizing longevity.”

Don’t think that these sorts of problems are limited to the hospitality sector. The ADEA applies to all employers with 20 or more employees. So your supervisors need to know how recruiting and hiring practices, layoffs, job transfers, and other employment actions, even seemingly offhand comments, could be construed as adversely affecting older workers.

Join us for an in-depth webinar on how to avoid costly allegations of real or perceived age discrimination.

You’ll learn:

  • Landmark ADEA cases illustrating what not to do—so you can minimize the risk of liability stemming from age discrimination claims
  • Examples of fair and legal recruiting and hiring practices for today’s multi-generational workforce
  • How to tell if your company projects an image on website(s), in recruitment materials, and other communications that could be perceived as favoring younger workers
  • Which forms should not include requests for dates of birth—and the forms on which it’s legally acceptable to require such information
  • How pay practices, including who gets raises and when, could factor into EEOC charges of ADEA-based discrimination
  • How to ensure firing decisions or other adverse employment actions are based on factors other than age
  • Dos and don’ts for transferring older workers to different roles or replacing them altogether—and signs that your actions could be perceived as being discriminatory under the ADEA
  • When a workforce reduction can be discriminatory—is it last in first out, or by seniority (not age)?
  • When an employment action could be perceived as having a disparate impact on an older worker or a class of workers who are protected under the ADEA
  • How to train supervisors and managers to avoid ageist language that could spark discrimination claims

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
