Significant court decisions regarding age discrimination in employment have been handed down, and this treatise provides the most up-to-date information available for practitioners to expertly advise their clients.

Written from an unbiased perspective by experienced practitioners in employment discrimination law, Age Discrimination in Employment Law leads the dialogue in this volatile field, presenting detailed guidance on issues such as:

  • Persons protected under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
  • Persons against whom a charge can be filed
  • Retaliation
  • Hiring
  • Promotion
  • Mandatory retirement
  • Reductions in force
  • Constructive discharge
  • Special issues for unions and apprenticeship programs
  • Disparate treatment
  • Collective bargaining agreements and union obligations
  • Litigation strategies, and more

The 2011 Cumulative Supplement to Age Discrimination in Employment Law includes:

  • Coverage of the increase in lawsuits filed by workers protected under the ADEA spawned by the recent economic recession, and what attorneys representing individuals and employers need to be aware of as a result of these developments in order to spot issues, advise potential clients, and prepare for ADEA litigation
  • An overview and analysis of recent decisions in the aftermath of the Supreme Court's 2009 ruling in Gross v. FBL Financial Services, which held that the plaintiff must prove age was the "but for" cause of the adverse employment action
  • A detailed exploration of how trial courts across the country continue to apply the adverse impact analysis set forth by the Supreme Court, which derives from the theory that employment policies that appear neutral on their face may actually affect older workers groups more harshly than younger workers
  • A timely update on significant legislative, regulatory, and case law developments

Whether counseling clients on avoiding potential risk areas for discrimination claims or defending against a claim, attorneys will find that this treatise provides winning strategies and detailed analysis of this litigious area of employment law and is the most comprehensive book on age discrimination available.

The authors of Age Discrimination in Employment Law are Barbara T. Lindemann, Of Counsel to Seyfarth Shaw, and David D. Kadue, Partner, Seyfarth Shaw. Jeremy J. Glenn, Partner, Meckler Bulger Tilson Marick & Pearson LLP, is the Editor-in-Chief of the 2011 Cumulative Supplement.
