Both elderly and youthful employees can fall victim to age discrimination. Employers are generally not allowed to hire, fire, promote, or decide an employee's compensation based on their age. However, it can be difficult to determine whether an employer's actions were motivated by age discrimination, or by a genuine belief that another person can do a particular job better and faster. Fortunately, many states have extensive complaint and fact-finding procedures so that employees can determine when they have been victims of discrimination and assert their rights.
