When older workers are let go, and younger ones are hired to replace them; when younger workers get all the promotions and perks, while older ones are passed over; when older workers' benefits are canceled, but not younger ones’—something may seem wrong. Indeed, it probably is, if such actions are in violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA). This act is one of the federal laws prohibiting job discrimination / retaliation that are enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
