ABSTRACT
The article reports on the awards of arbitrators in cases involving age discrimination in the United States. Age discrimination awards are hard and rare to identify because they are indexed as "failure to perform work." An amendment to the Federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) was made in 1978 which applies to employers' decisions involving recruitment and retirement. The person is alleged discrimination under two various legal theories namely: disparate impact and adverse impact. Disparate impact means that the grievant is victim of discrimination while the adverse impact implies that supposedly neutral criteria have a disproportionate impact on the employment of members of a protected class. INSET: Meaning of Willful Violation Clarified.
