Age Discrimination In Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA)
Congress approved the Age Discrimination in Employment Act on December 15, 1967. The ADEA prohibits employment discrimination against persons 40 years of age or older. It makes it unlawful for an employer with twenty or more employees, to fail or refuse to hire or to discharge any individual because of the individual's age. It is also unlawful to discriminate against any individual with respect to compensation, terms, conditions, opportunities, status or privileges of employment because of age.
Additionally, it is unlawful for employers, labor organizations, or employment agencies to print or publish any notice or job advertisement relating to employment indicating a preference, limitation, specification, or discrimination, based on age.
