What Actions May Be Considered Discrimination?

Employees age 40 and older are protected by the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Connecticut Fair Employment Practices Act, and other state and federal laws. Just a few examples of unlawful age discrimination are:

  • Refusal to hire or promote applicants and employees due to age
  • Failure to accommodate reasonable requests for items or arrangements that would aid an elderly or aged worker in performing job duties
  • Prohibiting an employee from participating in a retirement or pension plan because of his or her age
  • Terminating an older employee to save on health care costs or salary
  • Refusal to train older employees on new company procedures/policies
