In the face of an aging Baby Boomer population, employers should make sure that their workplace policies and practice do not discriminate based on age in violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) as well as similar state and local laws. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) remains focused on eliminating age discrimination in employment and preventing hiring bias against older workers. In 2012, the EEOC was very active, and in many instances victorious, in bringing age discrimination lawsuits against employers.
