The ADEA at 50

By 2019, over 40% of Americans over age 55 will be employed, making up 25% of the U.S. labor workforce. But many older workers who want a job cannot find work, and many believe age discrimination occurs in the workplace. As the population ages, age discrimination charges and complaints will increase. This session will focus on how to avoid those complaints.
