Employers cannot adopt discriminatory age‐based policies

Maximum age for hire, recent college graduate
Mandatory retirement (few exceptions such as pilots)

An employment policy or practice that applies to everyone, regardless of age, can be illegal if it has a negative impact on applicants or employees age 40 or older (disparate impact) and is not based on a reasonable factor other than age (RFOA).

Age Harassment

It is unlawful to harass a person because of age. Harassment can include, for example, offensive remarks about a person's age.

Harassment is illegal when it is so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile or offensive work environment or when it results in an adverse employment decision (such as the victim being fired or demoted).

The harasser can be the victim's supervisor, a supervisor in another area, a co‐worker, or someone who is not an employee of the employer, such as a client or customer.
