One of the business laws that he has consistently worked with business on is the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. This law is geared towards employees as they get older it provides that employers must afford elderly workers similar rights and privileges as those they accord to their younger counterparts. A failure by the business or organization to comply could lead to it facing discrimination lawsuits or fines.
The Age Discrimination in Employment Act was first established and enacted in 1967. Its original intent was to stop employers that had the capacity to hire more than 20 people from discriminating in the process against potential employees who are above the age of 40. This law is not easy to get around and some may not be acquitted with it and failure to adhere to it may expose a young and new business to legal hurdles they may not be in a position to handle. However, by using an experienced litigator you can be informed on the exemptions this is, for instance, consumer research organization which could be allowed to restrict applicants ages.
ADEA applies to various government institutions and contractors which has enabled the older employees to get a fair ability to earn and contribute to society.
