Classmate\’s Post:
In this scenario the employer wishes to terminate an employee based on age to hire a younger candidate. This is considered age discrimination, but this is a harder subject to maintain. There are so many factors that need to be discussed when trying to implement a complaint against the employer. In order to be illegal it has to be the only basis. Safety, current ability, these are all disqualifying factors that cause the employer to be in the right. If there are more qualified candidates, the employer has every right to hire, even if that means not hiring someone of an older age. Even though studies show that older employees are more reliable, and better trained (Bennet;Hartman. 2015. PG 536), this is hardly thought of the employer. They see them as higher risk of more time off (families), less efficient, and more expensive(Bennet;Hartman. 2015. PG 537).
In order to file a claim, however, the employee needs to base it on more than age discrimination alone. They also need to make sure that they are older than 40 years of age. Discrimination of an individual is, by law, only for those who are 40 years and older. Being under 40 an a few years apart in age will not warrant an age discrimination case. Because Title VII doesn\’t protect against age discrimination, we have the EEOC and ADEA. There are also certain states that enact their own laws to prevent discrimination, and they tend to be more in depth than the others.
