The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 protects employees and job applicants who are 40 years of age or older from discrimination based on their age with respect to hirings, terminations, promotions, reductions-in-force, compensation, benefits, assignments, and trainings or any other terms or conditions of employment. The employer must have 20 or more employees in order for the Age Discrimination in Employment Act to apply. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act also makes it illegal to retaliate against a person who files a claim of age discrimination or agrees to testify or assist with litigation or investigation into a claim brought pursuant to the Age Discrimination in Employment Act.
