Being that age discrimation exists it leaves a window

Being that age discrimation exists, it leaves a window for the older workers to fight against it. However proving that you were denied a job due to age discrimation has a process that makes it considerably difficult. The chances of winning an age discrimination case is extremly narrow. The article describes the process in filing for a case related to age dicrimination. “ The plaintiff must verify that he or she is part of the protected group, suffered adverse reactions due to the employer's behavior or policies, was successfully performing the work to the legitimate expectations of the employer prior to the discriminatory acts, and was subsequently replaced. The employer must then present nondiscriminatory reasons justifying the action taken against the employee. Finally, the plaintiff must establish that the reasons given by the employer were actually a pretext for discrimination.” This process shows that the person who is experiencing age dicrimination isn't in the laws favor regardless of the act that's supposed to “protect” workers over the age of 50. Although older workers face a large amount of discrimation because of their age, they're still considered to be a benefit to some employers. According to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), many employers report that older workers are more loyal, have lower rates of absenteeism, and are generally more reliable than younger workers. However, this does not dismiss the fact that they are being laid off and their jobs are given to the younger generation.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
