Older Workers - Retirement Age Increasing? Company Pensions Disappearing And Retirement Savings Wiped Out? Laid Off? Age Discrimination? Need Training?

 

 

Welcome to our web site dedicated to helping older workers fight back to keep their jobs and to be treated fairly in their pursuit to be gainfully employed.

We know you are just trying to survive in the tough and ever changing world of the older American worker who appears destined to work even longer before reaching retirement age.

 

Our main objectives for this web site are to:

Provide information and links to information that help older workers remain a competitive, viable and respected American worker

Create User Generated Comment Sections for our visitors to help identify American companies who should not be rewarded for the shameful practice of kicking older workers to the curb. Purchase of their products may need to be boycotted.

Create User Generated  Comment Sections for our visitors to help identify "Pro Older Worker" companies that should be acknowledged as a company that deserves your business as a consumer.

Provide products and product information from Older Worker Friendly companies

 

You, your loved ones or friends may have been a loyal worker tossed to the side for no other reasons other than being older, receiving a higher pay due to longevity at job and possible higher medical insurance cost to employer; and Companies Treating Older Workers This Way Need To Be Identified To Boycott Their Products and Services   

 

How Can Your Participation at olderworkersfightback.com Help? 

Your comments may help identify a hidden trend where older workers employed at the same company but located in different states may be getting pushed out the door at a higher rate than younger workers. 

Were You An Older Worker Let Go...Add Your Comment Here 

Some companies are practicing Systemic Discrimination that includes age discrimination to reduce their work force and retirement benefits. They also may be restricting older workers' access to management trainee programs and access to high level jobs just because of your age.

Your individual comments looked at as a total picture with other visitors' comments may detect a company's on-going systemic discrimination trend against older workers that should be investigated by the EEOC.

We also want to find and identify "Pro Older Worker" companies that should be acknowledged as a company that deserves your business as a consumer.

What Can We Do As Older Workers To Demand Fair Treatment

While we have the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC) as the official enforcer to stop a company's older worker age discrimination practice, older workers as one of the largest consumer groups in America have considerable buying power to bring needed changes.

As older workers, we can and should boycott companies in the way that will get their attention, Stop Buying Their Products Immediately.

As consumers and as older workers, we can and should start supporting "Older Worker" friendly companies by buying their products. 

And You Completed School When? 

As part of a company's effort to discriminate against older workers, do you think older workers are quietly excluded from available jobs perhaps by a quick review of the "oh, so handy school graduation date" on their completed application?

While The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA) does not specifically prohibit an employer from asking an applicant’s age or date of birth, most companies do not ask an applicant's age to avoid scrutiny by the EEOC to make sure the age request was not an intent to discriminate based on age.

Think about it for a moment.

Why would a company need to set off EEOC alarm bells by asking an applicant's age when they can quietly review a high school or college graduation date submitted on the application? An applicant's answer will for most workers date them to within a year or so of their actual age?

As an older worker, tell us here where you have completed an application but never heard back from the company.

We may just spot a very nasty trend taking place against older workers by many companies across America.

Even the EEOC may have to rethink allowing graduation dates to be required on applications.

 

Who Is An Older Worker?

Any person 40 or older is a potential target according to the EEOC

What we find ironic is the economic fact produced by the 2009 Consumer Expenditure Survey. Older workers in the 45 to 64 age bracket have an average annual expenditure of $55,500. 

These older workers that companies are writing off as a liability on average spend the most money on consumer goods and services.

 

The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) only forbids age discrimination against people who are age 40 or older. It does not protect workers under the age of 40, although some states do have laws that protect younger workers from age discrimination.

It is not illegal for an employer or other covered entity to favor an older worker over a younger one, even if both workers are age 40 or older.

Discrimination can occur when the victim and the person who inflicted the discrimination are both over 40.

Keep in mind that the EEOC rules and regulations concerning age discrimination coverage vary for private businesses/employers (must have 20 or more workers), state or local governments, federal government agencies, employment agencies and Labor Unions or Join Apprenticeship Committees.

Deciding Who Is Covered

Figuring out whether an employer has enough employees to be covered by the laws we enforce can be complicated. If you aren’t sure how many employees there are, you should contact one of our field offices as soon as possible so we can make that decision. Also, keep in mind that even if an employer doesn’t have enough employees to be covered by the laws we enforce, it may still be covered by state or local law. If it is, we can refer you to the state or local agency responsible for enforcing that law.

Come On...Companies and Government Entities Don't Conspire Against Loyal, Hard Working Older Workers In America.

As you will see from the small sample of 2010 EEOC press releases on our EEOC Smack Down page, "Age Discrimination Is Alive and Thriving In America" 

Unfortunately the EEOC press releases reveal companies across the entire spectrum of American businesses gladly taking the older worker's money each and every day yet kicking us out the door when no one is looking.

Well, olderworkersfightback.com is looking and will be commenting on companies that do not deserve the financial support created by the combined buying power of millions of older workers. 

We encourage you to use our Visitor Comment Sections as your voice to help expose companies who are mistreating older workers either intentionally or by accidental systemic discrimination.
