What are the signs of age discrimination in the workplace?

There are a number of ways age discrimination can manifest in the workplace. One sign is when older employees are being fired or offered buyouts while younger people are being hired. Another sign of age discrimination is when an older worker is repeatedly treated poorly or given an unappealing duty. In this case, the employer may be trying to replace older workers or get them to quit. A common sign is when supervisors make inappropriate comments regarding your age or harassing questions about when you are going to retire.

If you are experiencing age discrimination in the workplace, document all the signs you observe. All employees, regardless of age, have the right to be treated fairly in the workplace.
