Age discrimination is common: Know your rights

Older Americans know all too well that there are certain prejudices against older people. Older people are stereotyped and discriminated against, and old age itself is stigmatized in our youth-obsessed culture. The umbrella term for these attitudes and behaviors is called ageism.

Many older workers are struggling with age discrimination

In 1997, 15,785 age discrimination claims were filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). In 2013, a staggering 21,396 claims alleging this type of employment discrimination were filed with the agency. Partially due to these raw numbers and partially due to the stories of affected workers being highlighted by the media, it has become apparent that age discrimination is on the rise in the American workplace.
