Related to the factor of age, age discrimination is an approach that does not focus on skill levels and job competency, pe and places emphasis on the calendar age of the individual. History of Age Discrimination: Pa Age discrimination has its long roots. Older People are considered as the weak, less enthusiastic and lazy to do a work. A company has to bear its older employee expenses of de medical that is in huge ratio in aged employees. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 made discrimination on the basis of race, colour, national origin, religion and sex illegal, it omitted ra "older persons" or age as a protected class. Instead, Congress directed the secretary of labour to investigate whether age discrimination existed in the workplace and, if it did, to suggestpG solutions for solving this problem. The secretary did a huge work to decease the ratio of the age discrimination. Common stereotypes include older employees not being adaptable to change or not working as hard as younger employees.

It has many of the benefits and strengths as expenses save create enthusiasm, activity among young employees. Similarly some of the critics give arguments in favour of age discrimination like it is legitimate, non-discriminatory reasons, bona fide rs occupational qualifications, bona fide seniority systems and mixed motives. At same time this discriminatory behaviour has many of pitfalls too. If you are having this strict behaviour, you pe may not have experienced people in the crew. People with ages have personal relations and have wide network. They have many alternatives for any critical problem, while it is a tough task for a less experienced employee. That is a major pitfall of age discrimination. Pa Relevancy and the current trends of the Age Discrimination: de In this age the law and order brings many options to reduce the age discrimination in the employees and to save the experienced and skilled people in the success of industry.

Part-Time employment or the reduced work week 2. Retaining the obsolescent employees for lateral transfer 3. Flexible work schedulingTo 4. Reduction of wages to reflect reduced capacity. By these trends and offerings, the age discrimination is being controlled to get involvement of the older employees.

The combined company became a leader rs in aggregates, cement, chemicals, aerospace, and electronics. The Martin Marietta Corporation laid off older employees, the Government contended in an age-discrimination pe lawsuit. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said 2,200 of 3,500 employees terminated by the companys astronautics group between 1990 and 1992 were 40 years or older. After this law suit the company has to face a huge trouble. They were obligated to Pa some law penalties. After that the company adopted policy to utilize the older people for the benefits of the company but they should not be lay off. After this decision, the company more focused on its current employees training and development. By this the senior employees de were used to give training to the new employees. The new employees were gone under the supervision of the older employees. When they are trained, the old ones are not laid off but to ra use for the purposes of training, quality assurance and personal relations. By using the employees till the age of their retirement gives them an affiliation to the organization. They feel their selves associated with the firm as its family. As a result, the moral of currentpG employees get boosted. Similarly the company trust is built upon the older employees and the threats of fraud and other crimes get decreased as they have more loyal employees. The more time you spent with an organization, more love you have for that organization. In this way theTo loyalty, trust and the faithfulness of the employees can easily be attained if a company do not uses age discrimination. And they can be benefited by the advices, experience, trust, loyalty and the affiliation of the older employees with the firm that leads it to the peaks of success. In short adopting this habit is more dangerous and few benefits there to get success. And it can lead to huge benefits if a company discourage to adopt age discrimination.
