As an older resident of Los Angeles, you may be concerned about your viability in the workplace as you continue to age. Jobs can be more difficult to come by the older you are, after all. However, there are protections in place to ensure that you have a fair shot at employment just like anyone else.
One of these protections is called the Age Discrimination Employee Act, known as ADEA, which protects anyone over 40. This means if you're over 40, you are protected from discrimination in the following areas:
- Training and job assignment
- Firing or layoffs
- Benefits and compensation
