This book provides an easy-to-understand overview of age discrimination law in the United States, using real cases from the federal courts and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to demonstrate how problems are analyzed and decided. Age discrimination can have severe consequences for both workers and employers.

Employers who engage in or ignore age discrimination risk costly litigation, damage to reputation and needless turnover at a time of increasing competition for skilled workers.
