Storyboard Text

  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act 1967 Audrey Torres
  • In the year 1967, this act was enacted due to the unjust decisions made due to age in terms of job opportunity.  Half of all private job openings disregarded applicants over age 55, and one-fourth prevented those over age 45. This ultimately led to forced retirement for those over 45. 
  • Background
  • Standing committees are more likely responsible for the ADEA. This is because standing committees are responsible for dealing with long-term issues that provoke a legislative concern. How age influences an employer's mindset automatically illustrates the overall ongoing ideology of employers and the very reason why this act was necessary. 
  • Which committee did it originate from?
  • This act provided protection and relief for those over the age of 45. 
  • Importance
  • Fun Fact: The ADEA allows older workers to sue for age discrimination based on a “disparate impact” theory when an employer’s age-neutral policy or other employment action unintentionally discriminates against them. 
  • THE END
