Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Recent studies by organizations as diverse as the outplacement firm Drake Beam Morin and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers report that age discrimination in the workplace has been much less prevalent in our booming economy. On the other hand, Gregory, an attorney with 35 years of experience specializing in employment discrimination, warns that prejudice against older workers has not disappeared and suggests that it can only increase as we face a more uncertain economic future and as Americans over 50 constitute an increasing percentage of the workforce. Gregory addresses the various ways older workers are stereotyped and shows how discrimination is manifested in reductions in force, early retirement programs, hiring, promotions, demotions, and transfers. He then clearly and thoroughly details the steps involved in filing and substantiating a claim of discrimination and outlines the range of possible remedies. The author concludes with recommendations for changes in the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 and its enforcement. David Rouse

Format: Hardcover
If you work for a large or small corporation, this book is a must
read. Gregory shows how corporations streamline their payrolls by
getting rid of their 'older' employees, thus reducing wages, benefits, etc. Younger employees earn less, so it's just a matter
of doing the math. Corporations use early retirement incentives,
whether or not an employee wants to stop working. A little slow at first, this book picks up the pace, and grabs hold of the reader with fascinating, real-life cases, from a lawyer who obviously knows his stuff. Read on!!

There is very little written on the subject of age discrimination in employment that ventures to explain the whole process for the Plaintiff. This author is very credible to me both in providing behavior insights and process descriptions. It raises my confidence that older workers can gain a good understanding of the steps they need to take when they face the problem of age bias in employment.

One does not have to read a book to see that Age Discrimination is rampant in the workplace. Older workers, with years of experience and common sense, are the first to be let go and the last to be hired just about anywhere. The corptocracy thinks it is saving money by hiring some 20-something, who is, basically clueless to the way the business world really works, plug them in at minimum wage, PT , passing over an older, more savvy individual who would, ultimately do a better job and be more dependable. The younger person quits, gets fired, whatever, and the process starts all over again. Where is the savings in that? Have noticed it IS starting to get a little better for the older worker, as it is finally starting to dawn on these corporate types, that the passing over the experienced worker might just not be the best route, and have noticed places, especially Walmart do now have more older people working there. Whether this trend continues, who knows.

Gregory's book is very helpful in understanding what factors can win an age discrimination action. His clear and concise case studies are used to illustrate the main legal points and how the courts have changed over recent years in their requirements for success. It has in several ways become more difficult to win age discrimination cases and Gregory explains how and why very clearly.
The book also helps one decide whether or not to pursue an age related legal recourse.
