Age discrimination involves prejudicial attitudes towards older people and the aging process; discriminatory practices against older workers; and practices and policies that foster stereotypes about elderly people. Affirmative action is a set of laws and policies intended to end discrimination, and primarily focuses on education and employment. The US government agency Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing employment laws regarding discrimination against an applicant or employee due to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or genetic information. Further, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) prohibits employment discrimination against persons 40 years of age or older.
An age discrimination claim requiring age discrimination expert witness services often involve employment law cases, such as wrongful termination, hiring practices, and harassment.
Age discrimination litigation support could include record review, research, expert opinion, and expert testimony in court. In a high-profile case a law firm may request a testifying expert with prior expert witness experience. In addition, a law firm may seek an affirmative action expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
