Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is also important to older workers because its interpretation influences the interpretation of the ADEA and because older female workers and older minority workers are often subject to double or multiple discrimination. Of the employment discrimination claims that are filed with the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC) a relatively small number are age discrimination cases. The ADEA prohibits employers from discriminating against individuals because of age. This includes decisions about hiring, firing, layoffs, pay, benefits, promotions, demotions, performance reviews, or any other condition of employment (Fleck, 2012). This paper will look at what point can a person be forced to retire because of age, what types of legal action can you take and what types of injunctive relief are allowed.
