We counsel employers in claims brought by their employees under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA). The ADEA, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of age against individuals 40 and over, provides for multiple statutory defenses to allegations of age discrimination, including but not limited to “bona fide” defenses and “reasonable factors other than age” defenses. Our attorneys will help you understand the application of the statutory defenses and will help you with review and implementation of your employment actions that may have a disparate impact on older workers.
